Spaces in between
4 December 2014

‘Spaces in between’ is a series of photographs documenting sites affected by human activity in Scotland. The project shows landscapes at a threshold, disintegrating due to human interference.

The series is evidence of industrial changes taking place, a testimony of our compromises made in the past. Trade-offs between conservation and ‘progress’ which form today’s standpoint seem questionable, or at least should prompt questions.

The photographs have been presented in a disintegrated form. The formal unity of the image has been broken, resonating with the broken link between us and the landscapes we inhabit.
