John Woodman works with landscape as an experimental film/video maker and photographer and has exhibited work internationally over a period of 38 years. The collection of films selected for this DVD focus on his early landscape work in 16mm and Super 8 film made between 1977 to 1982. Exploring time-space and light his work concerns ways in which, through landscape, visual transformation, change and transience are represented and perceived in film. Particular emphasis is given to the way in which through time, changes in light, weather and season affect our perception of space and place.

The time-lapse photography and fixed frame used in the films Pear Tree, Dawn and Dusk, and Beach Fragments each result in a different and distinctive type of film register according to the number and frequency of the frames recorded. While duration is one of the concerns of the films Light Movements, Observational Series, Spider, Bridgeand Reflections on my Shadow, in which long continuous takes present the viewer with a contemplative and reflexive viewing experience. The twin screen film Time Flow contrasts a long take with a series of time lapses.

'a distinct body of sensitive, creative work.' Malcolm le Grice
