A winner in the Association of Photographers 2012 Annual Awards, Morgan Silk’s latest body of work Tasmania, was inspired by the extraordinary natural beauty and wild landscapes of the Antipodean island. Whilst on an assignment for One Life Magazine, to track the story of sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger, widely believed to be extinct since the 1960s, Silk was captivated by the unusual and majestic landscapes around him. From exposed tidal beaches which created strange uniform ridges in the sands that went on for miles, to the almost prehistoric nature of some of the unique island vegetation, and the extraordinary unspoilt beauty of the Bay of Fires, regarded as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Tasmania made an indelible impression on the photographer. A selection of images from this body of work can now be viewed on the gallery website. In addition to a series of high profile recent commissions for the likes of Mastercard, Wired Magazine, Land Rover, Shell and RBS, Silk is working on a new collection of images on British Traditions and Folklore.
