Visiting a landscape you know well in a different season can be like seeing it for the first time. That’s how it felt when I revisited Andy Goldsworthy’s Refuge d’Art installations. I have been documenting the project since 2004 but walking the 150 km of restored Provencal trails that link the installations in winter was a revelation.
The pieces are sited in the dramatic landscape around Digne les Bains which forms part of the extraordinary Reserve Naturelle Geologique de Haut Provence.
The work of Andy Goldsworthy is familiar to a wide spectrum of lovers of art, nature and landscape around the world, but this has been a distinctive departure for Goldsworthy.
