Jourdan Christopher is an African-American artist and photographer born in Detroit, Michigan. Jourdan settled with his family in Memphis, TN, in the early 2000's. He studied Rhetorical Studies and Philosophy at Bates College in 2014 and currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

Inspired photographically by the likes of Andre Wagner, Roy DeCarava, Garry Winogrand, Gordon Parks, James Van Der Zee, and Carie Mae Weems, Jourdan turns moments into images of both fine art and social commentary. Focusing on race, class, gender & normality, involvement/community activism, & his own life experience, Jourdan creates visuals & narratives that place you before & within situations as though in the moment itself.

His photography and writing have been featured in the Boston Globe,, and a number of other galleries and publications in Boston and beyond.
