All About the Artist

Chris Lord
My name is Chris Lord and I am the Head Pixie and Pixel Pusher at Pixielated Pixels. I am British born and bred but New York City based and I first picked up a camera almost 50 years ago. I took it on a school trip to Italy and have been shooting at some level ever since. For a long time I shot slides because I always took too many exposures and slide film was cheaper. I even built a darkroom in the middle of my apartment back in the 80s. But I have never been really satisfied with my results. I would take rolls of pictures and wait expectantly to get them back only to always be disappointed that they never matched what I had seen in my mind when I pressed that button. In the darkroom I tried many tricks like solarization in order to produce something that was “more” than an ordinary photograph but was never truly happy. In 1985 I bought my first computer and a year or so later I digitized slides for the first time by making three exposures with a black & white TV camera through the blue, red, and green filters of a color wheel. I had a piece of software that would recombine these three exposures into a color image and I was starting to get excited. Now with today’s hi-res monitors, powerful computers and Photoshop I am finally happy, playing to my hearts content and creating the images that I always dreamed of. When I’m out with the camera I’m really just collecting material for my next Photoshop session and I tend to shoot everything I see that just might make an interesting image, then I will sit up all night at the computer putting things together and creating. Happily, I retired from the “real” world nearly three years ago. At that time I opened my first and main website at Pixielated Pixels ( and never looked back! I hope you all enjoy the rather eclectic results.
