Each work is a photographic record of an hour’s sunlight on Hampstead Heath. Some are also traces of rain, resting insects, or blown grass. Each work was level with the horizon when exposed, facing upwards rather than directed towards the sun. In some the fabric was taut [S], in others it was loose [L]. The time, date, and occasionally the precise location in which each was exposed was determined by the oil sketches that John Constable painted on the Heath in 1821.

Eighteen works in total, sizes ranging between 18 x 13 cm and 240 x 135 cm. For images of all works and more background information, click here.
