About


CHRIS MOTTALINI

is a Hudson Valley and Brooklyn-based photographer, specializing in architecture, interiors and design.

Mottalini’s atmospheric and intimate photographs have been widely published and commissioned (and exhibited).

Most recently, Mottalini has photographed special projects about Hawaiian Modernism, the George Nakashima family compound and a new book project about the Louis Armstrong House in Queens. Mottalini is also currently collaborating on a still life project with Nino, his four year old son.




Mottalini's first book (which set him on the path to becoming a photographer of architecture and interiors) is a final portrait of since demolished Paul Rudolph-designed homes. His recent self-published book, "Land of Smiles", is a quiet, strange and surreal exploration of the landscapes of Thailand.

Chris is represented by 11th House Agency. For inquiries, assignments and commissions, feel free to contact Chris directly or reach out to his agent, Marissa Dutton.
Also, have a cool house or space you’d like to pitch for possible publication? Hit Chris up!
