About ChrisWestPhotography

Sales 27
On Etsy since 2020

Everything is Interesting. Everything is Beautiful.

In August 2020 I took a photo with my phone and titled it "Time as a Solid". I couldn't get the phrase out of my head and I realised that it described perfectly what my photography was about at the time, and how I saw the world through my camera.

The lichen, weathering and scars on brick walls, the peeling and cracked paint on a metal bridge exposed to years of sunlight and rain are a physical record of the time that has passed.

Since then I have realised that time is only one aspect of my photography.

Weight. Balance. Order. These are other facets of my craft. Composing a photo is a matter of harmonising those elements.

And never overlook the underdog. It may not have the beauty of a perfect sunset but a windowsill with layers of cracked paint or a pile of perfectly stacked rubbish bags are certainly interesting and have their own intrinsic beauty that we shouldn't ignore.

Sometimes it's not what you choose to look at, it's how you choose to see it.

And of course sunrises and sunsets. Is there anyone that doesn't find them beautiful? I'm still trying to work out if they're also interesting or not.
