Mary Overmeer

Mary Overmeer was born in the Scottish Highlands and studied photography at Stevenson College Edinburgh (now Edinburgh College) specialising in environmental portraiture. Mary currently lives in Southern Iceland, volunteering in a small eco village and documenting the creative work of the community’s residents. About her work on display at FLOW Photofest: “Growing up in the West Highland village of Lochcarron gave me an insight into the rhythms of daily life and the vital role each individual plays within rural communities. This series of photographs explores the deeper idiosyncrasies that lie between the rugged hills, silver birch and fishing boats.”
