Tara Morgana - Paul Holman
Tara Morgana is a book of the artist's photographs an poetry. Paul Holman is a lucid poet of London, and we travel with him to broken urban spaces where decay is overwritten with the encroaching wilderness. He encounters denizens of the underworld, the magical subculture and down and outs. The hard underbelly of magical London comes alive, hauntingly. In his Afterword, Holman spells out aspects of the artistic and magical method he employs. The book is splintered by a sequence of photographic images: glimpsed spirit portraits, apparitions.
