Polly Borland: Morph


Published in conjunction with an exhibition of Polly Borland’s work at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, this book provides an incisive new perspective on the photographer’s explorations of anthropomorphic soft-sculpture and abstracted portraiture. The series, produced in collaboration with model Sibylla Phipps, serves as a dramatic, almost surrealistic expansion of Borland’s visual language. Especially prominent are her attention to colour and reimagining of form. The works that populate ‘Morph’ are poignantly human and pointedly not, and her images are at once tender and troubling. Phipps also contributes a compelling psychoanalytic text to the book
