The Fierro Canyon Gallery carries unique Modernist Photographic Works with a tendency toward the abstract. We exhibit photography that expresses itself through the creative use of light, texture, rhythm, form, and balance.
Christopher Saxman has combined his experience as an Architect with his camera work and design training to create work that is simple, clean and UN-manipulated.
The Fierro Canyon Gallery specializes in Abstract , Contemporary and Modernist Photography.
The Fierro Canyon Gallery " Where the coffee is Hot and the Art is Cool"
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.
