New Web Site, New Shows

Welcome to the new web site. I moved to a new system that allows me to update galleries and submit blog entries without the assistance of my trusty, but now fully employed, web guy. I hope that this makes my blog a more dynamic experience for both myself and for people interested in my work.



Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography

J.P. Getty Museum

February 27 - May 27

The Getty selected works from the last ten years to include in Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography


Way Bay

Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

January 17-June 3

The Explorers

Von Lintel Gallery, Los Angleles

February 24–April 21

The Explorers is a solo exhibition with Von Lintel Gallery in Los Angeles in which I explore techniques I've developed over the last 15 years: scratching drawings into the photographic surface, painting on top of the photograph, creating shadow play with scratches in the glazing and folding the image to make a more dynamic viewing experience.


Christopher Russell has been awarded Career Opportunity Grants from both the Oregon Arts Commission and the Ford Family Foundation.
