Holdsworth style of the landscape photography brings to mind the early film works of Andy Warhol. Before digital imagery a photograph was a snapshot of time. With modern technologies we are able to have an experience of film in photography.
My favorite works of Holdsworth are his glacier images. We can see the glacier and how it changes over time. These works remind of Andy Warhol’s work with silent film where the camera was positioned in one spot and turned on recording the subject matter over time rather than just a snapshot. Holdsworth does a great job of bringing the idea of time decay to photography.
