Synopsis : Hugh Morton has had a long and active public life as an environmentalist, developer, and promoter of tourism. His favorite role, however, is that of news photographer. Hugh Morton's North Carolina gathers hundreds of photographs from his sixty-year career, including unpublished images from his personal collection and many well-known images of the state's people and places.
The collection is divided into three sections. "Scenes" ranges from the coast to the mountains, including many of Morton's famous images of wildflowers, wildlife, and state landmarks. "People and Events" features state and national politicians, educators, business professionals, and media figures. The "Sports" section reflects Morton's passion for athletics, with a particular focus on college basketball and football. Informative captions throughout the book provide background on the people and places pictured as well as Morton's reflections on the moments he captured on film.
As this collection reveals, Hugh Morton was on the scene for some of the most important events in the history of twentieth-century North Carolina, and he always carried his camera with him. Lovers of North Carolina, both local and distant, will all enjoy this richly personal state portrait.
