Lauris Morgan-Griffiths

Lauris Morgan-Griffiths worked as a journalist in radio, television, national newspapers and magazines and relocated to Hastings five years ago.

In 2012 she exhibited Other Lives as part of the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival.  This project consisted of a series of portraits of fishermen in their huts, each one with a corresponding still life of the tools and treasures displayed there, probably unconsciously, into attractive, satisfying arrangements. 

In 2014 as part of the Edge group at Hastings station she exhibited a series of photographs of the train journey from Hastings to London – the landscape flashing past, rain drops tracking down the windows; images of a journey, time and life speeding up, speeding past towards a final destination. She was also part of a group show Underexposed in St Leonards Garage space.

Morgan-Griffiths studied at the London College of Printing. Her background in journalism has led naturally to a preference for taking photographs about the patina of people’s lives and their environment. She is fascinated by marks and interventions: those things that add character and history, curiosity and intrigue to the natural world, landscapes, faces and abandoned buildings. It is a way of seeing the world differently, giving a sense of mystery and is something that makes her smile. 

She is the author of two books on photography:

Georgia O'Keeffe: An American Perspective  Published 2009  Quercus 

Ansel Adams: Landscapes of the American West Published 2008  Quercus
