Between 2016 and 2018 Christopher worked with Melbourne Festival (South Derbyshire) on a Heritage Lottery funded project entitled “For The Love Of Lettuce”, celebrating the areas market gardening heritage.

“Christopher has a quiet, but determined manner, he is unassuming and developed an excellent relationship with the market gardeners and the Melbourne Festival team. His initial hesitence masks the fact that he thinks deeply about his work, and takes time to formulate a plan and avoid distracting his subjects… When you look at his images with people they always look relaxed in front of his lens... Christopher’s images perfectly captured the beauty of the produce and the care and dedication which goes into growing the produce.”

Sharon Brown, Melbourne Festival, Managing Director, 2018.
