About Chris Facey

Chris Facey (b.1990) is a photojournalist and portrait photographer raised in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides in Raleigh, NC. Chris has the ability to create images that are powerful yet tender. Inspired by the works of Gordon Parks and W. Eugene Smith, he documents communities with a softness and allows space for emotional depth, while still covering hard hitting issues such as the racial injustices in civil rights to Women's Safety in New York City. With both vigor and a trained eye, Chris has been making work centering around the Black community throughout his career.

Being a father himself, Chris has been working on his #DadDutyProject, which focuses on debunking the myth of absentee fathers in the Black and Brown community as well as his " Being Careful: Carrying More Than A Burden" project, where he hopes to bring awareness and change to the lack of Women Safety. 

A School of Visual Arts BFA graduate and an Army veteran, Chris is on a strong path to success with his photo documentary projects which has landed him opportunities to be featured in publications such as The New Yorker, New York Magazine , The Cut & The New York Times.

He is currently available for assignments
