Please join us in the Bookshop and meet photographer Chris E King who presents his first monograph No Opportunity for Regret, published by Dark Spring Press.
Many of the landscapes in the book were shot from the passenger seat of a car whilst travelling across America with his American fiancée. The images operate in a liminal space between careful composition and split-second intuition. King’s images have a spare beauty. He captures wide-open spaces and industrial hinterlands where nature and human imposition collide. Lighting is subtle and exquisitely captured. Other series in the book record interior settings, such as living rooms and
bedrooms, captured in aspic from a bygone era or detailing the mundane beauty of our domestic lives, designed and constructed and yet full of eccentricity and accidental symmetry.
Chris E King is a London based photographer. In 2015 he was awarded the Big Sky Experience Award with the National Open Art Competition in the UK. In 2016 Chris won the Best Photograph Award at the 2016 National Open Art Competition.
Dark Spring Press is an independent publisher of small run & limited edition photography books based in Tucson, Arizona.
