About

Chris Le Messurier (b 1985) is a photographic artist living in London, UK. In 2023 he completed an MA in Photography Arts at the University of Westminster. His recent research utilises AI tools and targets algorithmically-influenced aspects of our society. Being born into a generation that moved from analogue to digital practice, Chris is now interested in the ontological significance of the synthetic image and the shift from archive to dataset. Thematically, his image-works tend towards notions of ruin and fragmentation, asking us to consider our position in time. Recent projects have been exhibited in group shows internationally and in the UK.
Working as an educator (and trained as a teacher), and currently as a research assistant for the Global Photographies Network, he is interested in the functioning and underlying structures of society at both micro and macro levels.
