Jem Southam

THE SHAPE OF TIME

Jem Southam, earlier this year nominated for the British Citybank Photoprize, showed for the first time in The Netherlands during Noorderlicht '91. Two years later he was part of the main exhibition "Home". Southam generally photographs during his walking tours in the vicinity of his home town of Exeter. He combines the results into poetic series around the theme of man and nature. In THE SHAPE OF TIME he focuses on the changes to which nature exposes itself. Pools fill up and dry out. Estuaries are the scene of battles between the water streaming down rivers and the tides. Rocky coasts erode under the influence of wind and weather and the ebb and flow of tides. The changes take place within several hours or over many years. Man can only look on.
