Chris Round is a photographer based in Sydney. He studied at both Canterbury College of Art and the School of Communication Arts in the UK, and also Sydney College of Art in Australia. Chris has also had a successful career in advertising, winning many international accolades including a coveted Grand Prix at Cannes.
From documenting landscapes featuring direct human interventions to exploring ideas of place, Chris’s work primarily investigates our ever-changing relationship with the 21st Century environment. Within these themes he looks for scenes that visually activate their surroundings in strangely compelling ways, fortuitously photogenic environments that he carefully documents rather than photographically exaggerates.
Chris’ work has been awarded both locally and internationally highlights include: Shortlisted, World Photo Awards and Winner Australia National Award; Grand Prize winner, PDN Exposure Award; Prize Winner & multiple Finalists, HeadOn Landscape Prize; Exhibitor, Royal Photographic Society IPE prize; multiple Prize Winner, Kodak Salon, CCP Melbourne; Selected Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Prize; Prize Winner & multiple Finalists Perth Centre for Photography CLIP award; FotoFilmic Shortlist & exhibitor; Moran Prize Semi-finalist.
His work resides in the Parliament NSW Collection, Macquarie Group Collection, and private collections in Australia, USA, Italy and UK.
