Christopher Armstrong - Artist Bio
Photography has been a part of who I am and how I frame the world since my late teens. When I began to engage with some of the recent changes in digital photography what stuck me the most was the way it allowed time, light and movement to build an image. I discovered a body of international artists who like me are exploring movement and time based photography, called the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM). This technique involves moving the camera during exposure, allowing the light to draw an image over time. It allows me to build layer upon layer of light/time into an image, capturing a build up of moments, much like a painter stopping only when I feel the image is complete.
