Artist's Walk, Saturday, April 13, 10:00am-11:30am
Location: Hunnewell Building
Join The Arboretum's current exhibiting photographer, Chris Morgan, for a walk in the Arnold Arboretum. He will discuss the best techniques for landscape photography. Bring your camera or phone.
Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over fifteen years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.
Morgan has photographed on five continents for over forty years; however, he is currently to be found, year-round, photographing in the Arboretum.
In addition to his photographic work, Morgan appraises rare, early computers, is a computer consultant, an author, puzzle designer, musician, and magician. He is also a Lewis Carroll scholar, and has written five books. He has spoken extensively about Lewis Carroll at Harvard University's Houghton Library, the Boston Athenaeum, and other libraries and universities around the country.
Morgan is featured in the Harvard Gazette.
