Chris Facey (b. 1990) is an NYC-born and raised documentary and portrait photographer based in North Carolina. Chris creates images that are powerful yet tender. Inspired by the works of Gordon Parks and W. Eugene Smith, he documents communities with a softness that allows space for emotional depth while still covering hard-hitting issues such as post-Jim Crow efforts to erase and change African American history to combating stereotypes amongst the African American community. With both vigor and a trained eye, Chris has been making work centering on the vast and complex diversity of the African american experiences and cultures.
