The Moth deri­ves from one black-and-white pic­tu­re that Jem Sout­ham made in about 1983: a soli­ta­ry man stan­ding on Gwi­thi­an beach in St Ives, Corn­wall. From this sin­gu­lar, medi­ta­ti­ve moment, the book of other­wi­se unpeop­led, colour pho­to­graphs unra­vels like a suc­ces­si­on of memo­ries, drif­ting back and forth through time. Over the cour­se of 30 years, Sout­ham inter­mitt­ent­ly retur­ned to the west of Corn­wall to explo­re a place stee­ped in mari­ne and mining histo­ry, and in the mytho­lo­gy of Cel­tic saints who exi­led to Cor­nish shores. His poe­tic sequence of images, inspi­red by the alli­te­ra­ti­ve ver­se of the old English poems The Wan­de­rer and The Sea­fa­rer, moves from vis­tas of mea­dows to water streams, for­got­ten homes and farm dogs awai­ting their food. Now and then, Southam’s fluc­tua­ting cur­rent of pic­tures is punc­tua­ted by a sub­li­me moment in the rural land­s­cape, only to be eclip­sed by the hazy memo­ry of The Moth.
