Our wonderful neighbour’s Curious Duke Gallery are hosting Chris King and his a captivating photographic exhibition ‘No Opportunity for Regret’ this March.
Taken from his forthcoming book, No Opportunity for Regret this collection of striking images, captured by Chris on his travels, brings the viewer on a journey across the United States and beyond.
“The solitary nature of this process is one of the reasons that none of the photos have any people in them. Printing and exhibiting my photographs means that the human part comes from interactions with people looking at my images, and conversations about where and when the images were taken.” – Chris says in a recent interview with Curious Duke Gallery.
Chris’s photography practice primarily encompasses two distinct bodies of work: landscapes and interiors that are deliciously devoid of human presence, and portraits that capture the very essence of the individual. Compositions are characterised by the artist’s distinctive framing and focus, either straight on like a window into another dimension, or a moment that’s been frozen in time with laser-like concentration on a singular point.
He writes of his work: “Borders, barriers, transitions, and divisions are fundamental to the universe. Life began when primitive structures developed that separated inside from outside. Gravity shapes galaxies and gives us up vs down. Natural and artificial distinguish between what we affect and what we have yet to influence. Interfaces and intersections are everywhere.”

Prints ready for collection from 4 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We are able to produce bigger and better C-Type photo prints than anywhere else in the UK. Our photo prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches (3m x 1.8m) in size, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.
While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.
We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.
After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.
When ordering online, we offer a limited range of classic photo frames, in three finishes: white photo frame, smooth black photo frame or a solid light oak frame. Alternately, just order your prints online to take advantage of our great value online ordering system, then contact us to discuss alternate framing styles and our range of thousands of frame mouldings.
