    Neil Henderson’s work involves varied ways of mapping and exploring site, strata, and landscape. With static long takes, Henderson uses the landscape as a formal structure, reflecting on presence and place, repetitive variations of similar subjects/objects in a way that reminds us of Robert Smithsson and Richard Long's land-art, and photographic work by Ger Dekkers and Jan Dibbets among others. For example in "Tidal Island" (2014), Henderson returns to the site of a circular man-made island off the east coast of England.
