We're putting together a list of resources for self-education, mutual aid, and ongoing action in the struggle for racial justice.

Christopher Thomas Allen

I have always been influenced by my tools and different processes in my work, particularly when there’s a happy accident to be created. I became fascinated with light and projection at a very early age, having a father who was a photographer and being exposed to the wonder of home cine films by my mother.
