Christopher Porter Photography

Urban Still Life

"I looked to the 17th century still life oil paintings to better understand the references in these contemporary, urban works. I see the impeccable technique, composition, balance, light and colour. I see the odd and, at times, incongruent juxtaposition of objects. In the paintings, the items are carefully staged in studio, but Christopher's images are objects found in the urban landscape. Life stilled."           S. Mitchell
