Stephen J. Morgan documents familiar, urban places, bringing about a photographic record of his journey through life and delving into his own identity, as a second generation Irish having grown up in Birmingham. In The Other Side of Everything, he places his personal story within the wider narrative of England’s recent political history and the legacy of the British Empire, through one of the country’s most potent and ubiquitous symbol: the flag.
Stephen J. Morgan (b.1970, UK) first solo exhibition was held at The Wapping Project, London. He has recently showed his work at Photon, Ljubljana, Slovenia; the Birmingham Central Library and Jerwood space. Recent publications include Collecting Contemporary Photography by Jocelyn Phillips, published by Thames & Hudson.
