Chris Hilton is a photographer based in Dorset, England. He is drawn to both the visually curious and to the notion of storytelling.

He is intrigued with the concept of capturing a story within a single image but also interested in looking beyond that solitary photograph and capturing a longer series or narratives.

He is fascinated by historical photographs (and their creators). Over time, this study has lead him to look at more contemporary work.

He is much more interested in ‘Why’ and ‘What’ we photograph than the technicalities of How’. He is absorbed by the interplay between photography and the written word.

He also likes hats ...
