In the late 1960s, Dibbets began to use photography to record and emphasise aspects of the geometry of landscape. This is one of a series of works depicting a beach in Holland in winter, when it was empty of visitors. Dibbets used a camera on a tripod and changed the angle by 15 degrees for each shot, then mounted the resulting photographs as a panorama. The title ‘Dutch Mountain’ ironically relates to the apparently undulating forms that Dibbets created in the characteristically flat Dutch landscape.
