Chris Devour is a 24-year-old photographer and graphic designer based in Bucharest, Romania. His work ranges from intimate monochrome crisp shots, to manipulation, graphic design and drawing. We got in contact with Chris and he told us some thoughts behind his work:
“Most of my personal projects portray people or things that are covered or distorted, because I believe we all tend to distort the way we see the world around us, the way we see people and things, we usually create a different opinion about someone before we get the chance to actually know them. Other times, the people that we meet change over time, thus we are being presented a false image. The glitch also represents fading away, memories, experiences of people and things we have seen, they all fade away eventually, but we try to immortalize them through photos or other actions.”
Most of Devours work is in black and white, according to him self; using black and white brings out the subject of the picture in a better way. He also has a condition of the eye known as dichromacy, which makes him perceive colors differently.
“I can see colors however I can better express myself and the emotions of the subject through black and white photography. I focus more on temperature and toner rather than a lot of colors.”
For the future Chris Devour plan to play more with the combination of design and photography.
