Christopher Mavrič was born in 1985 in Bruck a.d. Mur. He is currently based in Graz working as a freelance photographer. In 2008 he finished his studies in Information- and Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Graz. During his studies he started to work as a photographer for magazines and newspapers, mainly focusing on reportage and portrait photography with a social and cultural interest. In 2007 he published his travel and street photography for the first time in the magazine “Krasnoj Prospekt, Reise nach Moskau und St. Petersburg”. For the exhibition “Absolutely Free – Der Woodstock Effekt” in 2009 he created 39 life-size portraits which were shown at the Landesmuseum Joanneum in Graz. From 2009 to 2010 he attended Friedl Kubelka’s School for Photography in Vienna. He likes to travel and has exhibited his street and portrait photography in Austria and Germany. For most of his work he prefers to shoot film and to make prints using alternative processes like lith-printing or liquid emulsions.
