Christopher Rimmer Portrait - Lensky Gallery
Christopher Rimmer

Christopher Rimmer was born in England and emigrated to South Africa as a child. He began taking photographs as a teenager with a plastic 35mm Hanimex camera and sold his first photograph to the South African angling magazine Tight Lines as a fifteen year old in 1980. After immigrating to Australia in 1981, Rimmer did an Arts Degree majoring in Photography at Rusden College were he gained experience in the use of large and medium format film cameras. Following graduation, he taught darkroom printing at three Melbourne schools. He was appointed Victorian editor of Scuba Action Magazine in 1991 and spent hundreds of hours taking underwater photographs in exotic locations like the Red Sea and the Great Barrier Reef, which featured in the pages of his best selling publication. He returned to Southern Africa in 2006 to coincide with the 25th anniversary of his departure for Australia and immediately began to photograph the fascinating people, starkly beautiful landscapes and the magnificent wildlife.

Rimmer's photographs have been published in many Australian and international publications. He has exhibited in group and solo shows both in Australia and in the United Kingdom. His work is represented in several public and many private collections and he obtained an Excellence accreditation in the Federation International de l'Art photographique in 2009 and platinum in 2010. He is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and was recently shortlisted for British magazine B&W Photographer of the Year. Christopher Rimmer was invited to participate in the Fifty Photographers in Madagascar Project, held each year by de l'association les photographes de l'espoir in France.
