Dan Holdsworth was born in Welwyn Garden City, England. He received a BFA in photography from University of The Arts London in 1998.
His latest series, Blackout (2010), is inspired by the power failures in 1960s New York, which threw millions of people into darkness and prompted panic of nuclear attack.
Holdsworth shot his images in Iceland, a volcanic netherworld where day is night and ice is sooty pitch. He aims to convey with these negative images ‘the sublime’ which defies all logic.
His work has been exhibited worldwide. In 2008, he was awarded a Visiting Fellowship by the European Centre for Photographic Research in Newport.
