The Shadow

The use of video technology to reveal poetic aspects of the landscape that cannot be seen with the eyes alone (high and low shutter speeds, time dilation and compression, focal length extremes, all these combined at times with a moving camera), fractured reflections on ice and water, and shadow traces permanently left by the photographer on the landscape only in the recorded images combine with an unsettling soundscape to provide a visceral representation of the psychological experience of depression and recovery in Pamela Falkenberg and Jack Cochran’s film poem of The Shadow by Lucy English, for her Book of Hours project.
