Chris Silk

Street Photographer

Chris is an award-winning street photographer who specialises in candid images taken within urban environments. All his photographs are un-posed, taken on the spur of the moment, and usually use natural light with whatever surroundings were available at the time. Chris aims to tell an authentic, true-life story through an image. He is particularly interested in using photography to transform a seemingly mundane moment into something more humorous or surreal. The un-paralleled opportunities within street photography to act on intuition, and stretch powers of observation to the full, continue to challenge him as a photographer. In 2020, he won the Street Photographer Award at the British Photography Awards, was featured on multiple online platforms including LensCulture and Street Photography International, and had his work exhibited internationally at the Treviso Photographic Festival in Italy.
