Focused on Adventure

From the cloud brush­ing won­ders of the Himalaya to the mys­te­ri­ous jun­gles of Irian Jaya to the moun­tain wilder­ness of his back­yard Pur­cell Moun­tains, Pat Morrow’s career has defined adven­ture jour­nal­ism for 35 years. As a climber he forged chal­leng­ing new routes, while his nat­ural curios­ity and keen sto­ry­telling sense took him not only to the top of the world as a mem­ber of Canada’s first Mount Ever­est expe­di­tion in 1982, but also to become the first to climb the high­est moun­tain on each con­ti­nent. As pho­tog­ra­pher, writer and film­maker, Mor­row has explored some of the most remote and exotic des­ti­na­tions on the planet. But far beyond cap­tur­ing cap­ti­vat­ing images of land­scapes, flora and fauna, Morrow’s books, mag­a­zine arti­cles and films embrace the peo­ple of each of those places, hon­our­ing their unique cus­toms, his­to­ries and cul­tures. A pas­sion­ate advo­cate for wilder­ness preser­va­tion and social jus­tice, Mor­row, together with his part­ner in adven­ture, in work and in life, Baiba, has set a high bar for doc­u­ment­ing the sto­ries of peo­ple and the places that nur­ture their souls.
