"In this beguiling body of work, Cottam captures frozen moments of pleasure and effort as a young man flips himself into a gorgeous sun-dappled lake. I love that the subject is obviously an amateur in his baggy black shorts, and imperfect style – you can almost imagine the massive splash and his grinning face emerging from the water, seconds later. Cottam is an accomplished artist, who studied and subsequently exhibited with Peter Doig, and has pursued a study of the wondrous effects of light on the natural landscape throughout his career. "
