Born in 1983 in Yorkshire, British photographer Christopher Nunn received his degree from Bradford college in photography in 2004. He was recently announced as one of the winners of the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward 17 and has been published in i-D, The Wire, Le Monde, Morgenbladet, The New Yorker, and more. His work has been featured in several international exhibitions and galleries from London’s Saatchi Gallery to the Tokyo Institute of Photography.
Nunn is interested in photography as a storytelling medium and the subtleties he is so fond of are noticeable in his intimate portraits. His most recent project includes a long-term documentary series that began in February 2013 in Ukraine. The series began after Nunn became inspired by a visit to his grandmother’s hometown, Kalush. Since then, Nunn has divided his time between Yorkshire and the Ukraine amidst political unrest and the revolution.
