ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Gerry Morrison's photographs have been published as the covers of Julie Weston's mysteries, in her memoir of place, in IDAHO Magazine, and in The Saint Ann's Review. Many of his photos appear on his website, www.gerrymorrisonphotography.com, and in the collections of over fifty families and businesses around the country.
Morrison states: "I strive to capture moments when light is painting a scene in a unique or attractive way. Landscapes, people, still life or flowers come to life with light, and that is why I photograph." The cameras he employs, film or digital, and the darkroom or computer are his tools. He does not hesitate to use technology to adjust an image to reflect what he saw, just as he used to employ darkroom techniques to adjust a gelatin silver print for the same purpose.
For this book, Gerry used several cameras: a large format Linhof Technica 4x5, a Hasselblad 2-1/4, a Leicaflex R6, and a Nikon digital camera.
