Created over the past four years, Four Winters presents Jem's photographs made across a short stretch of riverbank along the floodplain of the River Exe.
Each winter Jem creates a fresh narrative and sequence of pictures as the dusk fades into darkness or as the light of dawn gathers. 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.
