Morris confronts landscapes cultivated by the hands of humans to serve the endless driving needs and desires of society. His images capture places and objects of stability within a flowing temporal environment, questioning our geographical and psychological understandings of place.
The environments Morris captures in his poetic photographs are full of intense natural life and live—-it’s clearly nature photography but taught and tense with the persistence of time. Wind thrashes a tree while a bird in flight seems frozen in air. Marsh grasses hum in a breeze as one stalk oddly stands in place. Allen Morris (MFA University of Nebraska Lincoln; BFA Oregon State University) is currently Associate Lecturer in Photography at the Peck School of Arts at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
