Christopher Willan Barcelona photographers

Chris Willan tells the stories of places and people through crisp and authentic images that hum with warmth, humanity and humour. His 20 years of experience have seen him work across advertising, TV, film, NGO, editorial and corporate assignments, both alone and as part of creative teams, with some of the best-known photographers and agencies in the world, including Magnum.

Born in Uganda, raised in Liverpool and based in Spain for the last 17 years, his natural affinity with all people - from Rastas to Royalty, burger flippers to billionaires - means he creates images of rare sympathy wherever he goes. In recent years, that eye for the narrative within has seen him solo exhibit at Tate Modern, Museu d'Història de la Immigració de Catalunya, The Gallery Oldham and The National Theatre, and win the World Responsible Travel Award for photography in 2013.

2014 has seen him move into moving image and he is currently completing a worldwide shoot for a major travel company.

He lives in the heart of Barcelona with his wife Belen and teenage sons Luis and Pablo.
