Christopher Button is an artist and photographer, living and working in Hong Kong. His inspirations are drawn from the city and cinema, particularly the films of Lynch, Kubrick and Tarkovsky. His quiet yet cinematic images look to explore the inner life of his subjects. Gently unraveling the confines which surround us all, exposing venerability in darkness and beauty.Read More
His first solo exhibition Some Dream (2016, Ethos Gallery, HK) combined photographs of people in moments of contemplation and introspection with details and accents of the city in which they live. This combination of inward thought and outward, abstract reflection has a haunting, dream like quality. Using predominantly analogue cameras and 35mm film, Christopher's images glisten with colour and light.
Christopher was also part of a group show at 'HK:ID' (Light Stage Gallery, HK) during Art Basel week. His work was shown alongside iconic Hong Kong street photographer Fan Ho and a number of international Artists. In 2017, he was commissioned by the British Council to take 5 photos to be presented for the Queens Birthday Celebrations at the Asia Society. Christoper Button is now exclusively represented by Blue Lotus Gallery.
