Christopher Fluder
Based out of New York, New York
Philosophy
Contrast doesn’t come into being by way of permission; it is autonomous and no one is immune, no one absolved from it. My photographs examine contrast and dichotomy.
Eschewing comfortable patterns or artistic conventions, I examine the features of real life as they occur — whether beautiful or horrifying. 
My recent works represent a reflection of New York City over a tumultuous three-year period; the mistaken, unseen, and overlooked have presented themselves on a case-by-case basis, highlighting the fragile nature of our existence.

Before harmony, there is chaos.
