"Occupying a space between the documentary and the make-believe, Dan Holdsworth’s photographs transform Icelandic glaciers into a strange and futuristic landscape.
In 'Blackout' the landscape is present only as a brooding, eerie image of itself: the blue of the sky has become the deep black of space, while the earth appears in pale negative.
This lunar-like terrain humbles the viewer before a foreign, awe-inspiring nature and repositions the notion of the romantic sublime."
