Occupation New Zealand photographer

Robin Morrison (16 June 1944 – 12 March 1993) was a New Zealand documentary photographer, best known for his unpretentious portrayal of New Zealand countryside, everyday life and quirky architecture. His photos can be described as nearthing memories of his childhood in the process of exploring the place as it is now.[1]

His entire collection of negatives was bequeathed to the Auckland Museum, which honoured his work in the exhibition Robin Morrison, Photographer (from 28 February to 13 April 1997).
