Wright Morris

Wright Morris (1910-1998) was a renowned American writer and photographer born in Nebraska. He published his first novels in the mid 1930’s. His writings evoke life in the Midwest and rural life in the Great Plains where he has spent his childhood. Back from a trip to Europe, in the 1940’s, Morris pioneered a new tradition of “photo-texts” pairing photographs with his own writing, that proved highly influential to future photographers. Devoid of figures, his photographs depict everyday objects and atmosphere. Morris’s poetic images exist in a fictional narrative, but reference documentary style and have inscribed his work in the great history of American documentary photography in the interwar years.
