Is there a book on the number of photographers schooled in architecture? I’m no anthropologist, just something you notice perusing design and photography portfolios as much as I do. Anyway, Christopher Payne is among the most talented of architect-turned-documentary-photographers I’ve seen. My favorite work of his can be seen in the “Textiles” category, where Mr. Payne lugs his large format camera into vast warehouses filled with repetitious lines of industrial equipment. Mostly void of activity, his portraits are equally compelling – usually lone figures working humungous machinery. A sense of loneliness, of reflection, and maybe even boredom permeate the photographs. I only wish I could see them large and in person. Visit chrispaynephoto.com to see more.
