Kid A, 2014

by Joshua Morris

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2015 Finalist

We had just watched the sun come up and it was finally breaking through the clouds, as my eldest son emerged from the ocean. I snapped five frames and this was one of them. It’s one of any number of fleeting moments that pass you by, or that you savour, or that you snap in an instant in the hope that it will bring back the sound of the sea, the smell of the salt and the feeling of being on holidays with your family, and loving it.
