About

Chris Pugh (b. 1971, Ukiah, Ca) is an award-winning documentary photographer from Ukiah, California. He is a member of the Partial Arts photography collective, founder of the Ukiah Photography Club, and staff photographer at the Ukiah Daily Journal.

With a focus on rural architecture, abandoned buildings, and forgotten subjects, Pugh pays tribute to the history of life in America through the lens of his camera.

Pugh is a fan of William Eggleston, Charles Bukowski, and anything touched by Jack White. He collects photo books, vinyl records, and is a lover of fountain pens and moleskin notebooks.

Outside of photography, Pugh is known for his love of loose leaf tea, locally brewed craft beer, 80's heavy metal music, and his fondness for useless trivia knowledge.
