Drawing upon the work of the Amber Film and Photography Collective, this chapter explores the relationship between performance, representation and identity. It looks at how the landscape of the former Durham coalfields is simultaneously identified and embodied through a focus on both its representation and some of the practices that affect its representation, and presents two stories. One of these stories is called 'Embodied landscape' and shows how Amber's work gives form to the Durham landscape, influencing how it is experienced. 'Embodied landscape' introduces two of Amber's projects: the film Like Father and a photographic exhibition called Coalfield Stories. The second story is called 'Landscape embodied'. The two stories are written side by side to demonstrate the impact of Amber's collaboration with people and landscapes on its work and how its practices simultaneously identify (itself and) the former coalfields.
