Chris Shaw

is an English documentary photographer. In his 2006 monograph Life as a Night Porter, Shaw published photographs taken over a ten year period whilst working as a night porter at certain London hotels, “all the time he kept his camera with him, recording in black and white grainy photographs the many strange events that he witnessed, taking pictures.” In 2004 Alexander McQueen and Nick Knight chose the pictures as the winning entry in an Independent on Sunday fashion photography competition.
