South Downs

Lightjet print mounted on aluminium. In 'South Downs', a road disappears around a bend to an unseen place. Illuminated by a wide vista of cloudy sky, the scene conveys the scents and sounds of the English countryside. Its studied calmness suggests that Richard Billingham captured a moment of stillness, using a medium-format camera to depict blades of grass in the foreground, and light falling across the distant slope. He reveals a sensitive perception of landscape, and an intention to make photographs that resemble paintings. His work is in the tradition of John Constable and JMW Turner, Romantic artists whose work he admires.
