Nick Mulvey, former founding member of Portico Quartet, releases new single Cucurucu accompanied by a stunning video shot on Nihiwatu beach in Indonesia by National Geographic director James Morgan, filmed in March 2013. Nick says: "I felt this song needed a video with wide expanses. Space to wonder. I didn't have to look too far for the right film maker - James is a friend of mine, and I've loved his work for National Geographic. I knew he'd understand what I was after and have something special in his vaults…" So we caught up with James Morgan to find out more, and see further examples of his beautiful photography.
