About the Danish photographer, Morten BO (b. 1945, in Copenhagen)
Morten BO is a documentary photographer with a social impact. His 15 travelling exhibitions in the 1970s and 1980s proved quite controversial. In the 1980s, he turned to more abstract photography with lines, contours and contrasts of light and shade. As a member of Delta-Photos from 1967 to 1972, in 1973, he was a co-founder of the Ragnarok group. In line with his interest in promoting the art, he founded Fatamorgana, Denmark's school of art photography, in 1989. From 1969 until 2007 he published over a dozen photo volumes.
