For FLOW Photofest his project Tanera (Ar Dùthaich) takes its name from an island in the Summer Isles archipelago off the west coast of Scotland and depicts the intricacies of living and working in a tiny rural community. Exploring the continually evolving relationship between people and the landscape in such communities; The few residents there have forged a thriving business, which not only values the heritage of the landscape itself, but also has an eye on modernity and ecological sustainability. “With this work I wanted to explore both this rich past, as a Viking sanctuary and a fishing and crofting community, and it’s current state and the people who are leaving their traces today.”
