Christopher John Ball – Exclusive Interview

Christopher John Ball is a widely exhibited and published, award winning fine arts photographer, playwright, writer, publisher, curator, arts juror and lecturer. With over 30 years experience as an artist – his work is held within public and private collections worldwide and he is, together with artist Paul Woods, co-founder of The Association of Erotic Artists – an international academic and campaigning body committed to working towards a greater acceptance of the erotic arts whilst defending the genre from the dual threats of censorship and intolerance.

After several years within a commercial photographic background, including running his own studio, Chris became increasingly drawn to the use of photography as a fine arts medium and this, along with exploring the role of the arts within the community and education, has been the direction his work has taken him.

In the 1980’s Chris was a founder member of ‘Action Factory’ – a community arts group, based in Lancashire, created with the aim of democratising and expanding the role of the arts within the community – in particular amongst disadvantaged groups.
Given that he has been disabled since youth – Chris maintains an active role in the campaign to promote disability awareness and rights.
