Chenini, an old Berber village in the Tataouine district of southern Tunisia. Quite a few scenes from the early Star Wars were shot in the surrounding area. Before the Arab spring, Chenini would receive hundreds of tourists a day, now only a handful come. Most of the families that lived here have moved to the bigger towns and cities to look for jobs.

Christopher is a travel photographer based in London. His professional and personal work take him to remote and off the beaten track locations across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Through his photography, Christopher is interested in exploring less well documented and often misunderstood parts of the world in an effort to help demystify them and build bridges of interest and understanding between different cultures. Ultimately, he wishes for his photographs to encourage others to take the road less travelled and explore, experience and encounter new places, people and cultures.
Christopher's work has been featured in magazines and newspapers around the world including National Geographic, CNN, The Guardian, Financial Times, and Der Spiegel. He had his first exhibition at the Institut Française in Antananarivo, Madagascar, in November 2016. Christopher's second exhibition - The Artisans of al-Darb al-Ahmar: Life and Work in Historic Cairo - was exhibited at the London's Royal Geographical Society in April 2018. The same exhibition was shown at Philanthropy House in Brussels between January and April 2019 and will tour Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver in 2021.
Between July and November 2019, Christopher travelled overland from London to Beijing working on a project about the Silk Road to be exhibited in London in 2020/21. The aim of the exhibition, created in partnership with the Aga Khan Foundation, is to share the wonders of the Silk Road with broader audiences, celebrate the diversity of cultural expressions found across Eurasia, highlight examples of how historical practices, rituals and customs live on today, and also reveal some of the connections between what appear, at first glance, to be very different cultures.
