About Chrislyn.jpg

I celebrate stories that connect people and cross borders.

A pure moment of kindness, a community united:
I craft images to show how interconnected we are. It's about putting the "co" in color!

Combining journalism with neuroscience, she has crafted Emmy-winning marketing videos and social media campaigns for StoryDriven, STORY Conference, and the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. In partnership with Migration Media, Chrislyn is now documenting the Neo-diaspora to spark intergenerational conversations around cultural narratives we inherit, protect, and create anew.

  • What you look for, or see, in the world is what you photograph. I see hope, beauty, dignity, our commonalities, struggles that are meaningful, brokenness that can be healed, differences that can be reconciled, locations with true character, and I see a piece of the Creator in every person.
    — Mario Mattei, International Guild of Visual Peacemakers

  • sonder: the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own, populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness
