Over twenty years ago Susan Derges began her series of river prints, capturing the continuous movement of water by submerging photographic paper into rivers. Working at night, she used the light of the moon and a micro-second of flashlight to expose images directly onto light sensitive paper.

The unstable and uncertain conditions left several prints scratched by stones or overhanging branches or the water failed to stabilise evenly. With new technology Derges has been able to revisit these previously unseen prints, restoring, reworking and transforming them, thereby allowing her to digitally produce in small editions original dye transfer prints on a human scale, which eloquently suggests our inclusion.
