Artist Statement:

Christopher Saxman is an architect by training. He was born into a family of photographers. He received his first camera and guidance from his father at age 13.  His architectural and design training, along with 50 years of camera work,and shooting photos around the world  has given him an eye for composition, light, detail, texture and color. Christopher's subjects are often simple, photos of bikes, doors, walls, fish, and water. That simplicity allows one to focus on the detail, color and composition. His photographs, described as painterly and abstract, are all about expressing the art in photography.
