Chris Floyd is a British photographer and film maker. His work has appeared in some of the world’s most highly respected publications, including The New Yorker, Harpers Bazaar, GQ, Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine, Wallpaper* and Lula among others. He has shot advertising campaigns for British Airways, Apple, Sony and Philips and has been selected several times for the National Portrait Gallery’s Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize and the annual publication, American Photography.
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.
Chris lives in England with his wife, Alice, and their two daughters.
