Very beautiful, large format sequence of photographs of the Yangtse, from its source on the Tibetan plateau to Shanghai six thousand miles away. YWP avoids all clichéd images by taking her photographs at precise 100km intervals; the ordered randomness she creates is marvellously compelling.
A brief illustrated reverie about the Japanese battleship Yamato, once the largest and most powerful warship in the world – “the Dreadnought of Dreadnoughts”. This noble dinosaur, unprotected from air attack and hopelessly vulnerable, went down with flags still flying and over two thousand men on 7th April 1945. Morris’s meditation on this “last arrow from the imperial quiver” delivers pathos and compassion, and admiration too.
