Our publisher’s family travels to Transylvania—and back in time.
Born and raised in suburban Detroit, Lindsay Morris’ passion for photography began at age 18 when she was given her first camera while spending a year in South Africa as a Rotary Youth Exchange student. In college, she returned to Africa with the School for International Training and spent a semester documenting the radically changing lives of the people of the Lamu Archipeligo in Kenya. Her photographic career course detoured in the ’90s when she launched her own line of responsibly made women’s clothing, which she designed and had produced in India, China and New York, but she found herself drawn back to her original art medium. Since 2006, she has been photo editor for Edible East End magazine. Lindsay’s work has been published in the New York Times Magazine (cover story), Marie Claire, Elle, Internazionale, GEO Germany, Photo District News, Loupe (Boston University), Haaretz Israel, Amnesty International and Sunday Life Australia (cover story) and has been featured on photography blogs Fraction, Slate/Behold and NBC News.com. She was a 2013 Critical Mass finalist and nominee for the 2013 Julia Margaret Cameron Award. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado and the Catherine Edelman Gallery, Chicago. She will publish her first book in November 2014 with Kehrer Verlag.
