The Land Of Giants

_6a_0445

Its been just over a year since I set off from Liverpool to hitchhike Scotlands western islands and highlands. It was a form of escapism I invented for myself, a way to reinvigorate and reinspire. I took a tent, rucksack of clothes and two cameras. Aiming to explore areas from a map I found in the back of a book detailing sites of notable myths and legends.

There were lots of early nights, plenty of early mornings too. A few unforgettable mornings during low light, the sun would rise above the hills and light up the mist in the air, transforming Scotland into an alien landscape. On more than one occasion I had those moments all to myself. On the Isle of Jura I shared the sunrise with families of wild deer grazing in hills whilst I sank up to my knees in boggy marshland. On the Isle of Skye, the weather changed so drastically one morning, I was soaked head to toe and completely killed off a camera. Thats where this work comes from, struggle, adventure…. it exists with a story to tell.
