The River, Winter traces photographer Jem Southam's journey from late autumn through to spring along the banks of the River Exe in Devon, choosing locations to take photographs and returning at regular intervals. Shooting over five months, Southam's images document subtle changes in the transforming landscape. Starting from this point, Southam's practice becomes an investigation into the relationship of the landscape and psyche, documenting the change which occurs within everyday contexts and giving rise to new perceptual processes and references. This shift is portrayed through a sequence of 10x8 colour contact prints, accompanied by an essay by Richard Hamblyn. Thanks to Mack Books (London).
