Christopher Erin began his photographic journey at the age of 3. Using a Polaroid camera given to him by his grandfather, he made pictures of his immediate surroundings. By the age of 15 he was the school yearbook photographer, and by 22 he had moved in to large format 4x5" film photography.


From 1987 until 2005 he printed his film in his own darkroom, making silver gelatin prints. Having a brief interest in digital image making, he moved back into large format in 2013. 


His journey shifted when he took a wet collodion workshop, which turned his love of analog in to a passion. Since then he has built one of the world's largest cameras which makes 22x27" glass wet collodion plates.
