Based in: Newport, Wales
At 16, Christie decided to buy a camera and teach himself how to use it. The following week he was offered a job at a local drum and bass club, and thus commenced his Small City Youth project, documenting the club’s clientele. This led to him studying documentary-style photography at the local university. He is currently working on a project called New Young Dandy, which looks at the way the residents of Newport (a town know for its destitution and high unemployment rates) portray themselves, which will be accompanied by a film backed by Park Royal Studios.
