Simmons has an underlying need to make sense of the world through his own experience. Using photography and film, he explores themes of time, motion and place, and the idea that landscape acts as a link between the past and the present. His work has a visual clarity and a quiet, reflective quality, which offers space for personal contemplation. Attempting to make the unseen visible, he encourages the viewer to consider on the constancy of the land, and our inherent relationship to it.
