Photographer Edward Woodman (b. 1943) is known for capturing seminal contemporary art exhibitions and installations, including Damien Hirst’s Freeze in 1988. Now celebrated in a show at John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, entitled Space, Light and Time: Edward Woodman, A Retrospective, his works are some of the most enduring and recognisable images of important works from the late twentieth century.
The show features collaborations with Phyllida Barlow, Helen Chadwick, Antony Gormley, Mona Hatoum, Michael Landy, Cornelia Parker, Rachel Whiteread, Richard Wilson and many more. As Barlow notes: “Edward Woodman has an innate understanding of how the seemingly irreconcilable qualities of the physical interventions and interruptions of space, light, and time can be held within an image.”
