About the Speaker
Chris Bowes is a photographer, artist and educated based in Naarm (Melbourne). His art incorporates elements of photography, video and installation, using these mediums to create glitches by manipulating the hardware and software of image-based systems. He has a keen interest in the history of digital imaging technology and how photographs and videos drive our understanding of, and participation in, the modern world.
Outside of his personal practice, Chris works as a photographer in the field of artwork and exhibition documentation, photographing for clients in a number of galleries and studios around Naarm (Melbourne). Within this work he photographs art of all mediums and captures images in several different styles, from documentation that tells the story of how an artwork inhabits a space, to technically perfect renditions of one-off pieces that can later be used to create reproductions.
Chris also teachers at RMIT where he specialises in alternative and experimental photography, and in his own business Kindred Cameras focussing on the more traditional aspects of photos and video.
