Chris McPherson is a Los Angeles-based photographer and director.
Even now, decades into his professional career, his images draw heavily from his Mesa, Arizona upbringing, where interests in punk rock and skateboarding intersected against the backdrop of the desert landscape and his mundane suburban environment.
Forever chasing the pursuit of youth—fun, freedom, and self-expression—the personality of his style and dedicated work ethic has remained consistent, drawing inspiration from a relentless thirst for life that continues to drive him onwards.
Chris’s latest personal photography endeavor has him revisiting many of the sprawling landscapes and environments of his Arizona past, to eventually culminate in a published art book and print exhibition entitled Mesas and Valleys.
