Our wonderful neighbour’s Curious Duke Gallery are hosting Chris King and his a captivating photographic exhibition ‘No Opportunity for Regret’ this March.
Taken from his forthcoming book, No Opportunity for Regret this collection of striking images, captured by Chris on his travels, brings the viewer on a journey across the United States and beyond.
“The solitary nature of this process is one of the reasons that none of the photos have any people in them. Printing and exhibiting my photographs means that the human part comes from interactions with people looking at my images, and conversations about where and when the images were taken.” – Chris says in a recent interview with Curious Duke Gallery.
Chris’s photography practice primarily encompasses two distinct bodies of work: landscapes and interiors that are deliciously devoid of human presence, and portraits that capture the very essence of the individual. Compositions are characterised by the artist’s distinctive framing and focus, either straight on like a window into another dimension, or a moment that’s been frozen in time with laser-like concentration on a singular point.
He writes of his work: “Borders, barriers, transitions, and divisions are fundamental to the universe. Life began when primitive structures developed that separated inside from outside. Gravity shapes galaxies and gives us up vs down. Natural and artificial distinguish between what we affect and what we have yet to influence. Interfaces and intersections are everywhere.”
