Photographer #358: Christopher Morris

Christopher Morris, 1958, USA, is a founding member of VII photo agency and a highly versatile photographer. In the first 20 years of his career he was a war photographer, covering conflicts in former Yugoslavia, Chechnya, Afghanistan and Panama amongst many others. In Chechnya he realised he wanted to change his course which led to an 8 year assignment for Time Magazine as a White House photographer following the Bush administration. During the Bush-era, he published his first monograph called My America. The book is a personal journey into a Republican America. The change from war photography, being very uncontrolled and spontaneous, to the White House photographer, being very controlled and staged, shifted his photography into a new direction which includes staged, documentary and portrait work. Currently Christopher has even ventured into fashion photography. He is a regular contributor for the Italian fashion magazine AMICA. The following images come from the series Obama’s Burden, My America and Chechen War.

Photographer #263: Denis Dailleux

Denis Dailleux, 1958, France, is a documentary portrait photographer who lives and works in Cairo, Egypt. Due to his passion for Egypt, he has released several books on this country. In 2008 he released Fils de Roi, Portraits d’Égypte which contains a series of low-key photographs taken over the course of fifteen years. He does portraiture out of an honest passion for people, with respect for his subjects. Ghana is his latest project, which he discovered after seeing the book Paul Strand dedicated to this African country. By meeting the people he tries to go beyond appearances to give a personal and magnified vision. Denis has travelled to various countries to make his images, from Uzbekistan to Sudan and from Laos to Yemen. Dailleux’s photographs are delicate and poetic. The following images come from the series Ghana, Fils de Roi, Portraits d’Égypte and My Aunt Juliette.
