“I think what makes my process unique is mixing an element from the past with a element from the present, like a vintage map with a modern day skyscraper.”

Chris turned his fascination with buildings and how they are constructed into a 10-year career in architecture, working his way up in the biz. The only problem was that his love of the craft started to escape him. It makes sense, then, that he would start mucking around in Photoshop with delightful old pieces of cartography and images of iconic buildings. He ended up creating his own art form by taking pieces of the past and marrying them with modern architectural marvels. A street scene with the unmistakable Flatiron building looks right at home on top of an old map of the gridded streets of Lower Manhattan, turns out. Passion: renewed.
