Born in California, Chris Enos earned her BA from San Francisco State and MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Though her first photographs were of the nude, she shifted her focus to documentary photography when she moved to the East Coast. In 1976, she founded the Photographic Resource Center, where she served as director until 1981. Some of her best-known work includes her early series Nudes, as well as Flowers and Plant/Life.

Enos has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions, including at the Danforth Art Museum (Framingham, MA), DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum (Lincoln, MA), Firehouse Gallery (Newburyport, MA), Robischon Gallery (Denver, CO), Barn Gallery (Olgunquit, ME), Zoe Gallery (Boston, MA), Contemporary Arts Forum (Santa Barbara, CA), and the Etherton Gallery (Tuscon, AZ). She has also exhibited her work around the world at the Instituto Chileno Norteamericano de Cultura (Santiago, Chile), Fotogalerie Bordenau (Neustadt and Hanover, Germany), Sforzesco Castle (Mila, Italy), and the Vancouver Art Gallery, The Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, and the Musée des Beaus-Arts de Montréal (all in Canada) among others.

Her work is also in over thirty institutional collections, including the George Eastman House (Rochester, NY), Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (TX), Center for Creative Photography (Tucson, AZ), J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles, CA), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (CA), Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), and Bibliothèque Nationale (Paris, France).

Enos has received over a dozen grants and awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award at the PRC’s 35th Anniversary Gala in 2010. She has also published a number of books, and her work has been reproduced in many more.
