Christine McCann

Country where you live:

City where you live:

Statement : 

I love stormy weather. Foreboding skies. Excited air. Moody drenched days. These energize me and draw me to capture the fleeting light and intense colors that precede dramatic weather.

I also love cities. To walk in cities is to be alone and anonymous yet connected to humanity and life through every other who shares that urban space. Like powerful, uncontrollable weather, a city immerses and acts on you.

I seek to reveal the physicality and spirituality of a city, its grace and flow, its reality, the natural world it supports, its residents.

I strive also to document the beauty in the everyday life and routines of a city - those moments that may be mundane or suddenly made memorable by manifold unpredictable elements.
