Despite his age (born in 1958) Chris Fraikin is still a newcomer to the art of photography. Educated at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, where he studied graphic design in the seventies, he built a professional career for forty years in succession in the graphic, the IT and the music industry.
In 2014 he decided to focus more on photography and in search for a direction in photography that would attract him most he attended workshops and made several photo tours as well in The Netherlands as abroad.
Besides projects of all kinds, he currently found his main field of interest in what he calls ‘archtracts’: minimalistic extracts of in particular architectural and urban objects. Mainly he roams at industrial sites to discover the objects which are photographed in a contemplative way. In his work you will clearly recognize his original graphic background.
