Chris Fletcher was born in Kirkuk in northern Iraq, and comes from a widely travelled family.

After graduating in Spanish studies in 1983 he lived in Spain for three years before moving to London and working with BBC News and Current affairs, giving him the opportunity to travel extensively. These opportunities for travel continued with his move to ITV in 1991 where he worked in programme distribution , representing National Geographic Television, Channel 4 International and the Survival wildlife series in Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Through the 1990s Fletcher visited over 70 countries, combining his television work with photographic projects wherever possible. In 1999 he undertook a 7 month motorcycle journey through India, Nepal, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, where many of the images featured on this website were taken.

The flexibility of travelling by motorbike enabled him to capture moments in time in rural areas off the beaten track, portraying the dignity and colour of local people in their daily lives. The ability to stop quickly on the open road and photograph his subjects candidly in a variety of settings brings a fresh and natural perspective to the images.

A selection of Chris Fletcher's work was first shown publicly in the "Bike, Camera, Action!" exhibition at Islington's Candid Gallery in London from November 2-11 2001.

All the photographs featured on this website are available for sale in a variety of formats and both corporate and individual enquiries are welcome.
