chris moxey : photographs

I was born in Brighton on the Sussex coast. When I was 18 I ran away to join the circus but they wouldn't have me, and I ended up working in the book trade for many years. Later, my studies at London College of Printing included photography and that's when I bought my first camera, a Praktica MTL3. At home in my basement flat, I would develop and print my own black and white film, using a bin liner to block out the light from the door. I can still remember how excited I was by this process. I've mostly gone digital these days but not exclusively.

After a break of many years, and having taken voluntary redundancy from my job, I rediscovered my love of photography. Now I'm making up for lost time!

I am Assistant Editor of fLIP magazine and a committee member of London Independent Photography.

In June 2017 I was featured as part of On the Edge of the Sidewalk, a series by Siri Thompson in which street photographers talk about their non-street work. I was interviewed by Didi S Gilson in 2016 for the Street & Repeat group on Flickr
- and Tiffany Jones interviewed me for London Independent Photography in 2008.
