Christopher Cook

Christopher Cook is a New York–based artist, born and raised in Brooklyn. After a friend recommended the Canon AE-1, he began photographing his neighborhood. Cook has exhibited in galleries throughout New York State, from the Lower East Side to upstate Auburn. He was a 2020 AIM Fellow at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. In 2021, Valentine Museum of Art acquired 160 of his Black Lives Matter photographs. In February 2021, Cook’s solo exhibition at Brooklyn’s Welancora Gallery, Am I Next?, showcased his documentation of the Black Lives Matter movement (May–September 2020). In the summer of 2021, he finished an artist-in-residency at Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts in Ithaca, New York.
