Christopher Wahl, Canada/USA, 1972, is in the first place a portrait photographer. He has had a wide range of people in front of his Hasselblad. Examples are: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Mick Jagger, Peter Beard, David Lynch and Jane Jacobs. The images are strong, honest captures of the portrayed.
Wahl also works on projects. He made pictures in Disneyworld and in North Huron that are double exposed inside the camera. Another project focuses on people working in the news business.
The target of this website is embedded in its name; to post active image-makers until we reach 500 photographers. The photographers can be from any discipline within the photographic range, but they have to be worth looking at and have a certain level of quality. When we get to number 500, we will have a deep database of great photographers.
500 photographers is done by Pieter Wisse, a photographer himself based in Rotterdam, NL. For three years (2009-2012) he was the founder and owner of Four Eyes Photography & Art, a gallery and bookstore based in his hometown that also released Four Eyes Photography Magazine.
Once this website reaches photographer #500 it will be finished and done. It will then only be here with the function of being an archive of amazing photographers of the 21st century.
