I am a self-taught Photographic Artist. My work focuses on the natural environment around my home in the beautiful Spa District of Central Victoria, Australia. I have exhibited both at home and abroad, including New York, Paris and Miami, and have recently published my second book of photographic art.
I don't know what I would do if I couldn't create, it is as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It is so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
Quotes from some of my peers:
"With the fine touch of an artist and the visual acuity of a professional, she creates art from the natural surroundings and it speaks in tones of pure brilliance to all those who partake - RJ Heller, Writer & Photographer, U.S.A.
"Chris Armytage brings us images that glow with incomparable energy and compel us to look at the world through new eyes. Beauty, luminosity, tenderness, power; all present in Chris' work. It's a delight to see." - Robin King, Artist, U.S.A.
"Chris's work is imbued with a subtle feeling of emotion ... they are not mere photographic recordings of an event, but an encapsulated and precious moment in time...." - P.Fowler, Director, sculptor, photographer (U.K.)
