Still Beautiful 2018
David Grandorge, Paul Shepheards, David Campany and Patrick Lynch (editor)
This appearance of innocence is beguiling. On reflection, the charm, beauty and stillness of the photographs reveal the complexity and depth of the entanglements of humankind and the world.
Comprising essays by Paul Shepheard and David Grandorge, and an interview between the photographer and David Campany, Still Beautiful is a timely and poignant document.
David Grandorge’s Arctic photographs, taken in 2007, are a form of witness to what is now a lost world. In 2017 he recorded the effects of mass migration – of global politics – upon the water levels of The Dead Sea.
Still Beautiful is an acclamation of wonder: of both the beauty of the world, and of capacity of photography to move us to acknowledge it.'
