Craig Morey was born in 1952 in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, in the Midwestern U.S. He attended Indiana University and studied with the noted Bauhaus artist, Henry Holmes Smith. In 1974, Morey moved to California, where he and a group of other young photographers founded San Francisco Camerawork, the first nonprofit center for photography on the US West Coast. Camerawork Gallery was (and continues to be) devoted to showing the newest and most innovative work in contemporary photography. Morey served as Executive Director of SF Camerawork from its founding until 1981
A great deal of Morey's work in the late 90's moved toward a very stylized and iconic bondage theme, and his work from that period is often included in major publications of fetish and rope photo artistry. The legendary "fetish diva" and rigger, Midori, chose Morey to photograph her first book, The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, and they have continued to collaborate on various projects, including a documentary film by noted director Tony Cane-Honeysett, entitled Mondo Bondo, released in 2007.
Morey's fine art prints of his black & white work are sought by art collectors in the US and Europe, and his photographs are often included in major collections of erotica and fine art nude photography published in print or on the web. At present his monographs from the 90s are out of print, and only available from sources such as Amazon, eBay, or from the photographer himself.
