Christopher John Ball is currently in the process of digitally archiving and restoring his entire collection of negatives. These take the form of 35mm, medium format and 5x4 monochrome negatives, covering a period of over 35 years, and include documentary, fine art nudes, fine art flowers, social documentary, photographic essays and more. Many of these images have not been publicly displayed before. He is planning a series of publications based around these and other images. These will be published in late 2014 to early 2015. Christopher will also be placing many within the pages of this website and the site will have a new design to reflect the updates and publications in late 2014.

“Mid-life male photographer meets young, nubile female student-cum-artistic muse - so far it’s old hat. But photographer turned playwright Christopher John Ball and co-writer Dean Sipling, whose background is film and television, bring the pairing into a thoroughly contemporary world of intercepted emails, sinister insinuation and sharp retorts. Their ‘guilty until proved innocent’ plot ... is thoroughly watchable and believable - perhaps as a result of Ball’s professional insights and DS Dom Lucas’ services as police advisor to the production.” Barbara Lewis – The Stage
