Christopher Saxman is an architect by training but he was born into a family of photographers.
At age 13 he received his first camera and guidance from his father.
Since then, he has been shooting photos around the world.
Architectural and design training, along with 50 years of camera work, have given him an eye
for composition, light, detail, texture and color.
His subjects are often simple: bikes, doors, walls, fish or perhaps water.
His work has been described as painterly and abstract.
Christopher's photographs are all about expressing the art in photography.
