Here, Silk departs from Americana and captures a classic piece of traditional british seaside culture. Aside from the cultural significance of the image, it also captures the greens blues and yellows of a British summer which work together brilliantly, and works with the composition to pique our curiosity as to whats around the corner and leads the eye to the beachgoers in the distance.
Morgan Silk was born and raised in England's brewing capital of Burton-on-Trent and studied photography at Blackpool and Fylde College, graduating in '92 before moving to London, where he began retouching for some of London's top photographers and advertising agencies.
Ten years on, he made the decision to follow his heart and returned to photography, shooting personal work that would soon gain international exposure through London gallery shows and winning awards including a prestigious AOP Gold Award for his Zoo project.
It wasn't long before he embraced a new commercial career, traveling the world, shooting for leading clients and brands, while still maintaining his passion for fine art photography, digital post-production, and printmaking.
Morgan’s other interests include guitars and music technology, hydroponics, and all things fermentable. His first collaboration beer with Burton based DE14 Brewery, “Morgan Silk” NEIPA was proudly launched at Craft Beer Rising in London, 2018.
