Projects: In 2011 Chris published a project entitled ‘One Hundred And Forty Characters’. Over a period of a year he made contact with 140 people that he followed on Twitter and photographed each of them in his London studio. The idea for this came at a moment when he realised he had not spoken to any of his closest real life friends in over a month, yet he was communicating several times a week with people on Twitter that he had never met at all. The project received worldwide recognition and acclaim, with features about it on the BBC, Newsweek, The Guardian, Sunday Times, Elle, Esquire and many other publications and websites.
