Dan Holdsworth

Untitled 1 (Hyperborea)

2006
C-print

122 x 152 cm

Dan Holdsworth’s awe-striking photographs appear so otherworldly it is almost impossible to believe that such sites could exist. Exploring the farthest reaches of the earth to capture such scenes, Holdsworth uses only traditional photographic methods to achieve the effect of his strange, futuristic landscapes. Reconstructing the notion of the romantic sublime for the 21st century, Holdsworth’s practice is consumed with investigating the unknown: pushing the peripheries of time, space, and consciousness beyond the limits of ordinary perception.
