Camel. 17” x 23”, Edition of 25, Archival Inkjet print
The colour palette of Morgan Silk's 'Camel' pairs the azure sky with a classic american desert to great effect, really giving the sense of a scorching hot day, and the absurdity of the scene in which the only respite in sight is what appears to be an outhouse with the stencil of camel on the outer wall. In this Silk pairs the american passion for the frontier with the consumerism of camel cigarettes and the strange marriage in american culture of nature and consumer.
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.
