Ewan Morrison

Self-portrait

About this artwork

Ewan Morrison is an acclaimed and award winning novelist and journalist. He graduated from the Fine Art Photography department of Glasgow School of Art with a first class honours degree in 1990. This self-portrait was the centrepiece of his degree show. It shows Morrison from behind, standing in front of a projected image of himself naked. The photograph gives the impression of two figures in an embrace. The image anticipates some of the pre-occupations in Morrison’s writing. These include split-selves, the erotic and the problems of alienation and social fragmentation.
