Emily Richardson - Six Films

Emily Richardson - Six Films


Emily Richardson's films explore landscapes and environments to reveal the way that activity, movement and light are inscribed in place. Traversing an extraordinarily diverse range of landscapes including empty East End streets, forests, North Sea oil fields, post-war tower blocks and Cold War military facilities Richardson’s films offer a dazzling deconstruction of place and time. They focus the mind and eye to detail, finding transcendence and emotion in the everyday.
