I was always been driven by curiosity and the desire to travel the world. My fascination is underpinned with questions such as: "what is life like for others and how do other people live on our planet, how diverse is nature and what else is out there and beyond? Pursuing answers to these questions has led me on numerous photo trips to India, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Mexico, Australia, USA, Brazil and Ecuador.The lens becomes my eyes and I literally devour my experiences and document them forever.My curiosity for Africa hasn't abated as I find myself travelling more than ever. Whether portraying her people, animals or landscapes,I find that Africa is good for my soul. It is rich, genuine and satisfying. I pray I do her justice.
"My artwork is an attempt to reconcile my physical surroundings with the fears, fascinations, curiosities, and daydreams occupying my mind. The photographs and constructions consist of common artifacts, materials, and scenes from everyday life, which have been rearranged and reassembled into various forms, patterns, and illustrations. The images aim to examine the distance between where my mind wanters to and the material objects that inspire those fixations. Equally important to this work are the 'big picture' and the 'little things'--the mundane and relatable artifacts of our daily lives, and the more mysterious notions of life and existence. This work is about creating order where we expect to find randomness, and also hints that the minutiae all around us is capable of communicating much larger ideas." -Kevin Van Aelst

From the photographer: "Had the pleasure of observing this grizzly sow and her cub this May. The snow was deep and the cub was riding on the sow's back as she was rooting through the snow for food. The sow had just caught a rodent and lifted her head to reveal her catch." via National Geographic
From Christopher Wilson's Blog: "Christopher recently photographed a 1928 BMW 328 for BMW Germany. Impeccably restored and now worth close to a million dollars, Christopher and crew shot this legendary, most-sought-after of sports cars - the car that defined BMW as the Ultimate Driving Machine - in a studio in Los Angeles. It was wunderbar to say the least."
What a beauty!
