Dan Holdsworth

(Sunday) (Sunday)

For over 15 years, the British photographer Dan Holdsworth has been blending art, science and nature to produce photographs which challenge our perceptions and reinvent the notion of landscape. His twin interests in the environment and new technologies have led him to study many glaciers around the world, notably in Iceland, the Alps and more recently post-glacial rock formations in the Jura. The artist works together with a geologist, using high precision instruments to gather millimetre-perfect data. The latest photogrammetric and geo-cartographic innovations make it possible for hundreds of photographs taken from a helicopter or by a drone to be meticulously compiled and plotted using GPS coordinates. The result is 3D imagery of a mountain in an unprecedented level of detail. A Future Archaeology thus makes up a digital archive, a genuine witness to the current state of these rock formations. Each contour and relief fissure is made visible and available for dissection by the archaeologists of tomorrow. This exhibition has been made in collaboration with Galerie SCHEUBLEIN + BAK, Zurich and Audemars Piguet.For over 15 years, the British photographer Dan Holdsworth has been blending art, science and nature to produce photographs which challenge our perceptions and reinvent the notion of landscape.
