Dustin Morrow has been shooting pictures since he was old enough to pick up a camera. He works with traditional film cameras as well as digital cameras, and occasionally with experimental photo technologies. His collections of photographs span a variety of approaches and themes. His ongoing documentary projects focus on landscapes rural and urban - Rural Route looks at small towns and farming communities in the American Midwest, where The Dublin Archive is a massive documentation of every nook and cranny of the artist’s favorite city, currently totaling nearly 7,000 photos. Siren is a track-by-track visual interpretation of Heather Nova’s album of the same name, while I Wanna Live in Los Angeles is a moody meditation on the years the artist spent in the city of angels. Memories that I’m Stealing and Warmth of the Sun are fashion/glamour-based takes on specific locales (the small Midwestern city and Southern California, respectively). Starkweather, produced in conjunction with Morrow’s film of the same name, portrays a series of troubled relationships in a small Midwestern town. Stealing Ireland centers on politics of representation, as framed through the “tourist’s vision” of Ireland.
Mr. Morrow’s photographs have been licensed in a number of media, and appeared in art and culture magazines as well as solo and group shows in galleries. To purchase a print, or license a photograph, contact the artist directly at email@example.com.
