Huw Morgan
Decay and Renewal
Colborne Street Gallery

Morgan’s work is a metaphor for life, a reflection of birth, growth, decay, and renewal. He is attracted to the way photography can convey stories and emotions related to beauty in decomposition paired with the hope of rejuvenation. His process involves snapping photos during long drives and nature-based hikes. Once back in the studio, Morgan reviews his collection of images looking for commonalities. From there he defines an idea, organizes the photographs into various thematic groups, then returns to nature in search of locations that support, challenge, and expand his initial assessment; always considering and refining along the way. Citing the work of photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher, Stephen Shore, Ed Burtynsky, and Richard Johnson as influences, Morgan is fascinated by life cycles and the impact of human interference in nature, specifically related to objects and architectural decay.

Morgan is a professional art and event photographer based in southern Ontario and is the official photographer for the Peterborough Symphony Orchestra. Morgan’s work has been exhibited at Gallery 1313, Gallery 44, Colborne Street Gallery, Rails End Gallery & Arts Centre, Kawartha Art Gallery, and Elaine Fleck Gallery. The artist holds a certificate in Photography from the Haliburton School of Art + Design and has attended photography courses at OCADU and Metropolitan University. He also holds a degree in Math and Computer Science from the University of Toronto.
