June 14th marked the launch of Ed Morris’ debut photography book GOOD AS GOLD BEYOND AWESOME.
The photographs – taken using Kodak Portra 400 35mm film on a manual Leica MP – were shot over a number of years. It wasn’t until Ed took a closer look that he realised there were connections he could neither explain nor had he planned. The images created are the result of incidental harmony: a happy accident. The book is presented as a series of diptychs that work to create what Ed describes as a “sort of visual Haiku.”
The foreword, written by David Kolbusz, explores determinism and fatalism. It urges us to contemplate fate and connection. “There is comfort in surrender” he finalises.
The first edition, designed by Paul Belford, launched at Soho’s Maharishi on June 14th, 6pm-9pm.
