Christopher K. Eaton a photographer, writer, and filmmaker living on the Colorado Plateau where he works and plays on some of our nation’s most amazing public lands. Originally from Southern California, he has been roaming the American Southwest for most of his life. Trained with a filmmaker’s eye, Christopher is always looking for the story in every landscape. He finds that the stardust that often tells the best stories is found in the stars themselves, the geologic essence of the landscape, the trees that find their home in the rocks, and rusty objects we leave behind as we explore the Earth’s skin. It is his goal to capture both the grand scale and the intimate beauty of the landscape as well as document the human presence on it.
“This then: to photograph a rock, have it look like a rock, but be more than a rock.”
