‘Natural Light II’ Portraits of Scottish writers.
In 1985 ‘Natural Light’, portraits of Scottish writers, was published with an accompanying exhibition and launched at the Edinburgh Book Festival, subsequently touring Scotland. Thirty years on, thanks to Creative Scotland, I had the unique opportunity to revisit some of the previous participants ie Alasdair Gray, Jim Kelman, Liz Lochhead and also to photograph another generation of leading literary lights including Irvine Welsh, Ali Smith and Ian Rankin. It was an exciting and rewarding project to be involved in, taking me from Dumfries to Chicago and many places in between. The book, published by Freight, and exhibition will be launched in 2016.
