Chris GravettI am a freelance photographer specialising in documentary, social documentary and live music photography. In 2015 I graduated as a mature student from the University of Westminster with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Honours in Photography with First Class Honours.
My practice encompasses a broad range of both short and long term documentary projects.
Project28Inspired by the UK's EU Referendum result this project will document the make up of the EU, pre Article 50 implementation whilst there is still freedom of movement for UK citizens. I visited and photographed a town in each of the 28 EU Statesbetween August 2016 and August 2017. The initial output, a hand made photo book was self published in July 2018.
An exhibition will be held in March 2019 to coincide with the UK's exit (or not) from the EU.
