SELECTED WORKS BY Dan Holdsworth

Dan Holdsworth
Untitled 8 (Hyperborea)

2006

C-print

122 x 152cm
Shot on location in Iceland, Dan Holdsworth’s Untitled (Hyperborea) series unfolds like an elaborate set from a science fiction film. Picturing the landscape at night, the eerie lighting effects are not the result of computer manipulation, but rather the natural occurrence of the Northern Lights bathing the barren, volcanic countryside. Photographed with long exposures, Holdsworth’s landscapes develop a supernatural glow, making the mountains and rivers appear alien and atomic; the recognisable features of distant buildings, cars, and passing aeroplanes lend a disturbing familiarity to the apocalyptic scenes.

Untitled 3 (The Gregorian)

2005

C-print

122 x 152cm
Dan Holdsworth’s Untitled (The Gregorian) images were taken at the American National Astronomy and Ionosphere Centre in Puerto Rico; the UFO-like form is in actuality part of the Arecibo Space Telescope. Photographed a night with exposures up to four hours, the unusual location of an aeronautics station nestled deep in a jungle gains an even more mysterious aura; as the acidic hues captured on film translate with the graphic effect of video games. Through his exploration of the natural world through the simple mechanisation of photography, Holdsworth defines a modern spiritualism, a humbling reminder of the scope of things yet undiscovered.

Dan Holdsworth - The Gregorian
Dan Holdsworth takes photographs at the edge of things. Early works were set in the anonymous hinterlands of urban sprawl - car parks of vast shopping centres, service roads that snake around bleak countryside, unkempt grassy verges beyond fenced-off civilization.

The work of photographer Dan Holdsworth is most cogently addressed under the sign of hybridity, the interaction of heterogeneous elements that occurs with greatest intensity at the planet's borderlines.
