“I became passionate about photography at the age of 12 when I began accompanying my dad to horse shows,” writes Bryson Morris, who’ll be featured for the month of October at EAC’s Washington Street Gallery.
“He generously let me use his old Nikon d200 with the kit lens, and during those outings, he taught me about capturing landscapes and the importance of light. This early experience shaped my shooting philosophy. Later, during a visit to New Jersey to see my grandparents, I connected with my great uncle, a photographer and filmmaker based in Calais, Maine. He mentored me, greatly enhancing my photographic skills. Inspired by his guidance, I made multiple trips to Maine, eager to learn more. At the age of 16, I finally purchased my own camera. My dad joined me on one of these trips, and I was captivated by the art of photography.”

“My photography philosophy revolves around capturing moments that immerse me in the beauty, wonder and mystery of our world, allowing me to truly appreciate it.”
Bryson, now age 17, has spent two summers doing intensive field work in Maine; his images of the Moosehorn, Eastport, Lubec and along the St. Croix River are the substance of Enchanted Journey, a new exhibition at EAC’s Washington Street Gallery. All are invited to an Opening Reception on Sunday, October 1, 3-5 pm.
