   Shorelines and Rivers - large-scale works by British artist Susan Derges showing the intersection of earth, water, sand, and light.
Susan Derges, Shoreline, 2 October 1998

These photograms of river and shoreline waters, and the sky seen through them, are at once revelations of a particular and unrepeatable moment in nature, and images that invite our recognition of resemblance and analogy. Framing them and setting them upright, giving them no captions but the date of their making, Susan Derges removes them from the systems of science and places them within the poetics of vision.
