In the video below, recorded for the Witney museum, Horn describes the fascination with the river its history and her creation of a specific viewpoint to examine the river from – using a tugboat – observing over time the changes of the ‘fetch’ of the river.

at the end she says: – ‘…….I go back to these images and keep looking for or longing for something that I know is there but I just need a little more time to find it’.

This seems like a method statement for an approach to collecting images.
