Los Angeles-based photographer, Chris Anthony, creates images based on childhood dreams that manifest into surreal narratives and haunting portraits. Using muted colors and crimson accents, the photos contain a mood that is weightless and ethereal. The images are created from a variety of materials including cheesecloth, paper mache, velvet, doll parts, mannequins and worn down clothes, yet maintain a dreamlike quality that leaves the viewer investigating an open-ended story. The artist was awarded the Grand Prize in American Photo’s Images the Year Competition in 2007. Anthony was born and raised in Stockholm and has exhibited with the Randall Scott Gallery in Brooklyn, New York and Washington D.C., the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, and the Bo Lee Gallery in Bath, UK.
