Christopher Broderick Klein is an award-winning wilderness and concert photographer, as well as an off-and-on poet, originally hailing from Wilton, Connecticut. Awestruck and inspired by the staggering beauty of the natural world, Christopher set out on a remarkable journey to capture terrestrial and extraterrestrial landscapes at the age of fourteen. Two years later, he had won multiple photography awards ranging from top prizes at local gallery showings to an honorable mention in Nikon's Best of College Photography. In his earliest years, he focused his travels throughout the Northeast, spending most of his winters in Vermont and familiarizing himself with the beautiful topography of New England. Despite all of his various travels, these early years continue to shape the pastoral quality inherent in his work.
Occasional trips to California and the Caribbean served to expand his already acute eye, and upon enrolling at the prestigiously eccentric Colorado College in 2009, he focused his travels throughout the American Southwest. Expeditions in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, and California broadened his portfolio along with his vast understanding and perception of the great American landscape. In those same years, a six week sailing voyage across the North Pacific led Christopher in an entirely new direction, encouraging visual creativity in a seemingly barren landscape: the ocean. Christopher currently resides in Sugarloaf, Colorado with his lovely muse and fellow artist, Miss Kimberly Graham Thompson.
