Christopher Morris began his career as a documentary conflict photographer working almost exclusively for TIME Magazine more than 25 years ago. Since then, he has been credited with redefining political coverage in America during his years covering the White House (from 2000 until 2009), and has expanded his portfolio to include work from the world of fashion. A founding member of the photojournalist agency VII, Morris has received numbers awards, including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the Olivier Rebbot Award, the Journalism Award from the Overseas Press Club, two Infinity Awards for photojournalism from the International Center of Photography in New York, the PDN Look Fashion Editorial Award and numerous World Press Photo awards.
