'Josephine Dixon’s light-touch approach in conceiving this book is a lesson in lyrical and poetic simplicity that transcends the melancholic darkness of inverted trees, reflected in each Malevichian black-square frame of the ponds’ surface, so adeptly observed by Dixon ... Winter Ponds is, in a sense, a meditation on quietness and darkness. To quote Thomas A Clark, Darkness is not closed but open.'
