Christopher Beane is an American photographer and fine artist based in New York City. Known for his unique and vibrant flower photographs and mixed media works. Beane has photographed an astonishingly vast selection of floral species. His intense relationship with the botanical began when he started working in the New York Flower District in the 1990s, which triggered numerous inventive bodies of work that explore the beauty and decay of flowers. His work has since been shown at the Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA, the Museum der Moderne, Salzburg, Austria, and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, France. He has been proclaimed the love child of Georgia O’Keeffe and Robert Mapplethorpe and is the author of “Flower,” a monograph of Beane’s collective works (2008).
