Published in conjunction with an exhibition of Polly Borlands work at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, this book provides an incisive new perspective on the photographers 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 Borlands 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.
