ABOUT For 20+ years, Christopher Chadbourne & Associates was one of the nation’s top museum exhibition design firms. Advocating story based exhibits, the firm’s clients included the Smithsonian, Mount Vernon and Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. Five years ago, diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, I returned to my early passion for photography. In my work I embrace complexity and color, and am fascinated by the characteristics of culture and place, the nuances of human behavior, the art of composition and the power of stories. In the past four years my work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, periodicals and international photographic festivals in Boston, New York City, South America and Europe. I was a Critical Mass Finalist, was included in the New England Photography Biennial and was 1 of 10 New England photographers selected to exhibit at the International Flash Forward Festival and the New York Photo Festival. A film of my work and 36 images were shown at the Festival Internacional de Fotografia in Brazil in 2012 in a session on Photography and Surrealism. I was interviewed on NPR, my work appeared in KATALOG, the Danish magazine of film and photography and was selected for the UMaine Museum of Art's Triennial Exhibition of Contemporary Art. In 2013 Kehrer Verlag acquired the rights to publish ‘ STATE FAIR: The Last Living Munchkin From the Wizard of Oz and Other Stories’ It was released in Europe and the U. S. in June 2014. Accompanying essays were written by noted photographic writer and International Editor of Hotshoe magazine. Bill Kouwenhoven and Paula Tognarelli, Director of the Griffin Museum of Photography. It has been featured in PDN, Lenscratch, Die Zeit in Germany, and The Standard in London. I will be signing books at Paris Photo in November. I am now again traveling the United States, pursuing my interest in American Place and Culture as I work on a project titled,’ WONDERLAND: How the Railroad Right of Way Shaped and Reveals the American Landscape’. I also serve on the Patient Advisory Council to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Disease Research.
