Eastport Arts Center’s Washington Street Gallery is pleased to present “Enchanted Journey,” an exhibition of works by emerging nature photographer Bryson Morris, for the month of October. An opening reception with the artist will be held on Sunday, October 1, from 3-5 pm. 

Bryson Morris is a 17-year-old from Myerstown, Pennsylvania, whose interest in photography began at age 11, when his father, a professionally trained photographer, loaned him a camera to capture images of show horses. At age 16, with interest in the medium growing, he acquired his first professional camera and lens, and was invited by his uncle, David Elliott, a retired photographer and filmmaker based in Calais, to come to Maine  for intensive field work. Images of the Moosehorn, Eastport, Lubec and along the St. Croix River made over two summers are the substance of this show.

“The stunning landscapes of Maine left an indelible mark on me,” writes Morris. “I learned the overall philosophy of photography, and its fundamentals, from my Dad. Uncle Dave coached me on many fine points of theme and composition, and he encouraged me to develop my own personal style.” Morris notes that his mission is to redefine nature photography, and to transport his viewers.
