Cibachrome Print Master
"All of our world, each living cell, every stone and drop of water, even the air and light around us, reflects and mirrors the glory and presence of the Creator and calls us to respond with wonder and praise...Too often, attempting to represent the sacred in nature is maligned as being naive or simplistic, and is said to be unchallenging and visually unsophisticated. This need not be so. The purpose of my photography is to provide a brief, if somewhat veiled, glimpse into that clear and brilliant world of light and power." ~ Christopher Burkett
Christopher Burkett was born in 1951 and was reared in the Pacific Northwest. In 1975, while he was a brother in a Christian order, he became interested in photography as a means of expressing the grace, light and beauty he saw present in the world of nature. Over the next twenty years, he gradually perfected his craft so photography could be the means through which he could express his innermost feelings and inspiration.
Today he works exclusively with Large Format color transparencies. Burkett is a recognized national expert in printing Cibachrome, by virtue of his use of sophisticated and unique masking techniques. He meticulously hand prints his transparencies with impressive sharpness and rich tonality. His masterful printing and numerous exhibitions rapidly brought him international acclaim. His photographs are featured in many public and private fine art collections.
All Christopher Burkett Cibachrome Prints are archivally matted, signed, dated, and numbered by the artist.
