Chris Fallows was born in South Africa in 1972 and is based in Cape Town. His work has appeared in more than 60 international documentaries with the BBC, National Geographic and Discovery Channel. Released in July 2020, Fallows’ Limited Edition includes some of the world’s most recognizable Fine Art wildlife photographs. It is a timeous reflection of global shifts towards sustainability and co-existence and is receiving widespread acclaim.
The engaging manner in which he photographs his wild subjects bears testimony to the decades he has spent in some of the world’s most remote regions, uniquely working in all three realms of Ocean, Air and Earth. His passion for wildlife and the natural world in a way has urged him to seek and portray the very essence of what makes each species unique to the fore. His artistic style is realistic but very intimate in that he purposefully tries to bring his audience into the subject’s life at eye level, and in that way create a feeling of being with his subject rather than having dominion over it. To create this feeling often means photographing from very low angles and using novel techniques that require getting very close to his subjects. His composition style is clean and unobstructed with landscapes that empower rather than overwhelm his subjects, resulting in a work that is impactful whilst still simple and pleasing on the eye.
His aim is to profoundly touch the audience in a way that emotionally connects them with his subject matter through a polarized range of emotions, from sadness for what we have lost, to awe and respect for what is left. Ultimately he wishes to unearth in them a primal desire to get in touch with the natural world that is our shared origin.
