CHRIS MORTON has been passionate about the outdoors all his life. In his early years he was a keen sailor and he later took up tramping and alpine climbing. It was the beauty of the landscapes he encountered in these environments that sparked his interest in photography. Since then he has pursued a range of photographic projects including a major involvement in the Our Place Unesco World Heritage Project. He has worked around the world and has exhibited in New Zealand and Australia and internationally as part of group shows. Chris is a Fellow of the New Zealand Photographic Society.
