About the Artist:
Dawn Haley Morton has had a camera in her possession since 7th grade. She began presenting her work in 1985, at festivals and art shows. In 2007 and 2008, Dawnʼs work appeared in 2-person shows in Boston and Gardner, MA with her husband, painter Dug Morton.
While working full time in film and television production and raising their daughter with her husband Dug, Dawn has also worked as an event and portrait photographer. Whether itʼs a wedding, corporate event, or a high school senior portrait, Dawn enjoys capturing the world in a documentary style that is different from the commercial photographers.
“I am an explorer, capturing the unexpected day-to-day in documentary style is sheer joy. Snapping a moment out of time that can never be replicated is a visual treasure. My true house style is represented in the blending of texture, color, humor, and awe of my subject matter. I enjoy capturing a moment that evokes an emotion.
A big milestone in your life, a nature hike, vintage market surfing, eating, relaxing, living… if we could bottle it up and keep it forever, we would. This is what I do… procure a visual slice of a feeling on a screen or paper, teleporting you to a place or sensation. This makes me happy. I hope it does the same for you when you experience my work.”85
