MORIYAMA AT HAMILTONS by Dorrell Merritt
127 x 215.9mm, 32 pages, black and white printing, saddle stitched, 2022
'Moriyama at Hamiltons', is the fourth physical poetry collection by Dorrell Merritt. Composed over the course of ten months, 'Moriyama at Hamiltons' explores what it means to live in the shadow of a global event; inspired by travel, swayed by pessimism, grounded by nostalgia, softened by the imagination and empowered by a desire to push onward, regardless. Experimenting further with approaches rooted in the conceptual, building on a life-long affinity with nature and relaying stories of tragedy, desire and isolation along the way, 'Moriyama at Hamiltons' serves as a chronicling, varied, complex and wholly authentic.
