TOMMY FRANKS (United States, 2002)

The United States's military operations in the Middle East, Central Asia and the east coast of Africa are directed from the US Central Command in Tampa, Florida. The attack on the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001 and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003 were among the operations coordinated from there. Both actions were led by Tommy Franks, at that time the Commander-in-Chief of the Central Command. In his series bearing Franks's name, Christopher Morris captured the everyday course of events for Franks and his command centre.

MY AMERICA (United States, 2006)

For the past five years photojournalist Christopher Morris has reported on George Bush's term in office for Time Magazine. As a photographer with the right passes and privileges, he could easily penetrate the heart of political power in the United States. That gave him the chance to produce the personal series My America while on his official assignments, in which he shows us how patriotism, power, politics and religious devotion mix in what outside the country is experienced as a typically American cocktail.

GHOSTS OF THE CONFEDERACY (2001)

The American Civil War, which claimed more American victims than any other war America ever fought, ended in 1865. But the ghost of the losing side, the southern Confederate States, still haunts the United States. Whether at the homes of former Ku Klux Klan members, or monuments to the Civil War, or public buildings in the south, the familiar rebel flag still flies everywhere. In GHOSTS OF THE CONFEDERACY (2001) Christopher Morris recorded the traces of the Confederacy, which appear to be ineradicable in the southern states of America. Recently Mississippi decided to include the emblem of the Confederacy in its state flag. As a reaction, the black population practices their own rituals. For instance, the march for civil rights for blacks, organized in the town of Selma in 1965, is reenacted every year.
