Dan Holdsworth was born in 1974 in Welwyn Garden City, UK, and graduated with a BA Hons Photography from the London School of Printing in 1998; he currently lives and works in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England. Holdsworth’s photographs deal with the phenomenology of technology, place, and consciousness, and are reflective of his profound engagement with photographic history. Holdsworth’s scenes are shot on site at exotic locations around the world, chosen for their pre-historic, futuristic, or

metaphysical resonance. Taking up to a year to produce, the otherworldly effects of his landscapes are achieved through both analogue and digital processes; his images never falsify information, but rather enhance the invisible ‘truths’ that are normally imperceptible to the human eye but can be visually evidenced on film. Holdsworth’s work has been featured at museums such as Tate, Photomuseum Winterthur, and the Pompidou Centre.
