Christian was born to Austrian / South American parents. They moved from blisteringly cold and grim South America to the shores of sunny Brixton, where he also developed a keen sense of sarcasm. in his later years Christian graduated with a Masters degree with distinction in Photography from the University of the Arts, London.

He participated in various group shows as part of a contemporary photography collective called Latitude, which actively questioned the ever changing role of the image within contemporary culture. 

Christian also assisted commercial photographers who worked primarily on 4x5 and 8x10 cameras. 

Currently Lives and works between LA and Europe.
