Cristian Ordóñez-Chile born and bred.

Categorised as ART., PHOTO BLOG.

Born in Santiago-Chile Christian Ordóñez now lives and works in Toronto, He skates and he skates with his kids. Top dad we say! Christian tells us that he uses his photography as a way of discovering and understanding more about his current surroundings and environments, He mentions that the process helps him feel more at home as a foreign person in a new land. Personally i think its rad when a photographer can express a true meaning through their work, and Christian is no exception. We love his film photos and we’re pretty sure you guys will to, We asked Christian to tell us a bit about himself and his work and select us some photos to check out……

“I was born in Santiago, Chile in 1976, and have lived in New Zealand, US, and since 2008 i’ve been based in Toronto, Canada, where I currently work as a senior designer at Concrete (concrete.ca). I started taking film photos around 1997 when I was studying graphic design, I had a two year program about film photography. Since then I haven’t stopped, I first started with 35mm, in 2007 I explored Digital and then in 2008 I went back into film exploring mostly medium format photography. Today my personal work explores my new surroundings (places and people) and how my life is affected or influenced by it. In a way I feel like I am searching for something each day, without really knowing what I am looking for and letting my emotions and intuition react to each scene I find.”
