Chris Grundy is a legend with superb email etiquette and fantastic hair. Oh yeah, he is also pretty talented behind a lens. A long love affair with the ocean has seen Chris develop a unique style and vision for his most often shot muse. For Gobe’s Twelve Frames, Chris shot some frames in Sydney and the rest in Tokyo, Japan, providing an insight into his life as a travelling photographer shooting for a growing list of solid clients.
Keep an eye out for his debut moving image work coming soon, shot on Super 8 film, of course. Thank you for taking the time to share a slice of your journeys with us Chris.
