Chris Stokes is a freelance photographer based in North London. 

After studying film and photography, Chris took a segue into a career in graphic design, returning again to photography in 2012. A portrait photographer with an emphasis on telling people’s stories, Chris’s own work looks to identify beauty and absurdity in the mundane, borrowing from film theory and technique to do so.
