Facing the World, Kaleidoscope captures most of what we experience in our hearts during our travels: the sheer beauty in a moment that can’t truly be described. It’s a glimpse of our inner sanctum, seemingly disparate shots of an instant in time when we stopped, focused, and caught our breath in awe.

mjmorrissey San Francsico
Born in the United States, Michael Morrissey was initially drawn to Paris in the early 1970’s. Trekking to Katmandu, he found himself driving the Magic Bus with an increasing involvement in photography as a way of capturing, in an instant, that which could never be explained in words. As a landscape architect, and master-of many-trades, Michael lived and worked in Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan, where he co-founded Refugees International. In Thailand he worked with the UNHCR developing refugee camps. After creating several real estate management companies based in Bangkok, Mike focused his passions: travel and photography. An inveterate global traveler with a penchant for discovering off- the-beaten paths, he has experienced moments of terror and peace, sadness touched by joy, acquiring a deep awareness of the connectedness present among all people and cultures and a deep respect for the poignant, majestic yet fragile natural world.
