A set of pigment prints from ‘Four Winters’ a series by Jem Southam.
“For the past four winters the English artist Jem Southam has repeatedly visited a short stretch of riverbank along the floodplain of the River Exe. He stands and watches, as the dusk fades into darkness or as the light of dawn gathers, witnessing the different passage of each winter. In the evenings, long past sunset, swans, geese and ducks arrive on the river to spend the night in safety. In the mornings the birds wake, preen, feed and socialise as they prepare for the new day.”
Throughout his career spanning over 40 years, Jem Southam has looked at landscape, its subtleties of change and the cycle of seasons, whilst revealing human interactions with nature.
Also included within the MPF Collection are further works from Southam’s output, such as River Mouths, Rockfalls, Ponds, along with large-scale framed works from early project ‘A Raft of Carrots’.
The Martin Parr Foundation houses the complete set of prints from Jem Southam’s Four Winters.
