Chris Morton is currently Curator of Photograph and Manuscript Collections at the Pitt Rivers Museum. He trained in history (UEA) and social and cultural anthropology (ISCA, Oxford), carrying out fieldwork in and around the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana. This research examined the relationship between building practice, environment, and skill, as well as the dynamic relationship between materiality and migration. Since 2003 his research has focused on the historical photography of Africa, and in particular the visual history of anthropology as a discipline. He has carried out extensive research on the fieldwork and photography of EE Evans-Pritchard in southern Sudan (as a result of an AHRC-funded project at the PRM), and recently co-curated the exhibition Wilfred Thesiger in Africa at the Pitt Rivers Museum, as well as co-editing a book of the same name. An audio slideshow based on a Radio 4 broadcast about the exhibition in December 2010, presented by Frank Gardner, is available here. In western Kenya, Dr Morton has developed a long-term collaborative project with Luo colleagues centred on historical photographs held at the PRM, and in 2007 he organised a series of local exhibitions of images from the collections in Nyanza with Gilbert Oteyo. More information is available on the Luo Project website. In 2011 he established the Centre for Anthropology and Photography at the PRM to promote the archiving, research, and dissemination of anthropological fieldwork photography. Future research projects include work on the Louis Sarno collection of audio recordings and photographs of the Bayaka people of Central African Republic, and the visual history of the ‘Punitive expedition’ to Benin City of 1897.
