Monograph – Dan Holdsworth (SIGNED)

Reflecting a time of unprecedented creative energy and diversity in photography, the Photoworks Monograph series surveys the work of the most important emerging photographers in the UK. Comprehensively illustrated, and with specially commissioned texts, these substantial 112-page monographs are the first in-depth study of each artist’s work, acknowledging their achievement to date while introducing their work to a broader audience.
Dan Holdsworth has gained an international reputation for his landscape photographs in which the dramatic effects of light and space combine with the subtle merging of nature, architecture and technology to produce powerful visions of our contemporary world. Holdsworth’s locations have a global range, from the apparently mundane – car parks and motorway intersections – to the epic and sublime topography of places such as Iceland. But his camera transforms each scene into something remarkable and often stage-like; Holdsworth’s places are alien to everyday experience but alive with the sense of human endeavour and imagination accelerating into the future.
Edited by Celia Davies, with essays by Angus Carlyle and David Chandler and an interview with the artist by Charlotte Cotton.
