The Story

Chris Cooper

Melbourne based photographer, Chris Cooper, has immersed himself in the classic car and motorbike culture. He is building a body of work that focuses on the community that is built around this culture – the owners, the friends, the good times.

Believing in Henri Cartier-Bresson’s “decisive moment”, Chris’ photographs not only capture a moment in time, but draw you into the story behind the photos.

But it was burning through his first roll of Ilford in High School that was the hook, line and sinker for Chris in capturing priceless moments shared with friends. What started with shooting photos of friends riding BMX has given him the opportunity to document his passions from music to classic cars and motorbikes. And with every photo, his love for turning these everyday moments into art has grown.

The result is a portfolio which has seen Chris shoot for the likes of Hop Up Magazine, Fuel MagazineStreet Machine Magazine, Chopped Rod & CustomGreasy Culture MagazineDragon Wolf Press Motornation TV, Classic & Custom Garage, Fly Wheels Magazine, Cruizin Magazine, Raydar Magazine,  2020bmx Magazine, Focalpoint BMX, and No Heroes Magazine.
