Chris Honeysett began taking photographs at the age of three and hasn't stopped since. What began as a curiosity with a plastic box camera has turned into a career and primary passion in life. "I feel excited to be alive when I'm making an image. It's as if life is at a crescendo at that very moment, and I am privileged to share in it. After making an image, I bow to the subject in thanks."
In 1987, he began using a large format camera that completely changed the way he took photographs. The slow, cumbersome equipment allows for a more meditative approach. Using the broad landscape as a starting point slowly minimized his angle of view over the years.
