Chris MacGovern first got into photography at 10 when his father converted an old cellar space into a dark room. His father was an architect and used the facility to support the practices imaging needs.
On graduating from art college Christopher moved into a more traditional career in marketing. However a mid life retraining to become a counsellor, and then a psychotherapist resulted in him taking up photography again. Now with digital tools he explores two themes. Architecture, or interpretations of the built environment. And, connected to his mental health training, identity.
He has exhibited in London in 2017 independently and then in 2018 as part of Photomonth 2018. He currently has work in the Royal Academies 2019 Summer Exhibition in Piccadilly.
