Dan Holdsworth by Tugce Sezer

Dan Holdsworth
Dan Holdsworth makes photographs of landscapes and interiors that lack human figures, and his works have a strange, illusionary quality. His photographs often appear otherworldly; the viewer has hard time believing that such sites actually exist. He explores farthest reaches of the earth to take photos. He uses only traditional photographic methods to achieve the effect of his strange, futuristic landscapes. Dan Holdsworth's large-scale photographs explore the limits of perception and the possibilities of photography. He has three major works exhibited At the Edge of Space (1999) The Gregorian (2005), Hyperborea (2006). Hyperborea is a series of landscapes. He pictured landscapes at night. The frightening lighting effects look like computer manipulation; but it is the natural occurrence of Northern lights.
This photograph is showing the Aurora (the Northern Lights) from the city limits of Reykjavik in Iceland and from the Andoya Rocket Range above the Arctic Circle in Norway. Holdsworth himself describes taking this photo “It’s like being given a glimpse of the rhythm of the universe.”
The lights maintain a grey-green and some pinkish color. He uses long exposures. This photograph manage to convey a sense of planetary motion and connect the landscape with a wider view of space and time.
Untitled, Hyperborea, 2006
