Article in Scottish Photographer’s Magazine

Scottish Photographer’s Magazine has created a 3 page article on their new edition on the Sonnets from Scotland series. In the article I also give some background as to what the series is about, as well as discuss what is next. You can read the article by clicking here.

An excerpt:

“I started work on the “Sonnets from Scotland” series while making a short film for an exhibition in London called “Die Hasenjagd”. The final scene of the film was a shot of a single figure standing in Loch Na h Achlaise and the image stayed with me. I decided to explore these empty spaces, and examine concepts of romanticism, history and nationalism in contemporary Scottish landscape photography.

To date I have travelled all over the country, shooting in some of my favourite locations, most notably on the Isle of Skye, and Glencoe. I hope to show the series in 2009 alongside some works by Bill Brandt, who is a direct influence on the series. “
