Chris Anthony

A friend of fine steered me in the direction of  Los Angeles-based photographer Chris Anthony.
He has been working on this series, Seas Without A Shore, for the past 18 months. Working with wet plate collodion and tintype processes, Anthony photographs objects that mean a lot to him. Mysterious still life, portraits and magical creatures of the sea represent ongoing themes throughout the series: solitude, hope and survival.
His work reminds me a lot of the artist Leanora Carrington, Some of his characters look like they have been pulled right out of her paintings. His web-site is well worth a look.
