Chris is a photographer and filmmaker based in London and Paris.


Chris Lee (born in U.K. December 1986) is a British photographer and filmmaker currently based in Paris. His visual language is inspired by story archetypes, human values and the collective unconscious, touching on solitude and internal conflicts. The nature of film and photography provides him with an illusion of truth whereby he can begin to dissect reality and create new stories.

Before obtaining a Masters Degree in Photography and Image- Making at Paris College of Art, he attended Central Saint Martins University of the Arts in London 2006, studying Visual Communication, and later achieving a Visual Storytelling diploma at Les Gobelins in Paris, 2019.

Chris co-founded photo collective Tripod City with Charlie & Paul. They publish books documenting life on the streets in various cities around the world. Notably, The Piñata King, a short documentary shot whilst on a photo trip to Mexico, was Vimeo staff picked, showcased on National Geographic and won an award at Booooooom TV Awards 2017. He has also worked on various short films, music videos, documentaries and promotional content. His debut short film The Hedgehog won Best Short Film and Best Director at Los Angeles One Reeler Competition and was nominated for British Council Best Short Film at LSFF 2015.
