Christian Chaize is a French artist born in 1960. Chaize has enjoyed a successful career as a commercial photographer for three decades.
In 2004, Christian Chaize began focusing his artistic attention on a small stretch of coastline in Portugal. Since then, using medium and large format film cameras, his commitment to documenting one specific beach from a consistent vantage point – that is, taking its ‘portrait’ at various times of the day over a variety of seasons over several years – has culminated in his most renowned series, Praia Piquinia.
