Dust to Dust

2010

Due to depopulation and topographical reasons the Scottish islands have an unusually high number of abandoned and derelict houses. During 2004 and 2005, using Ordnance Survey maps I traveled throughout the Outer Hebrides and Orkneys documenting these empty buildings and produced an extensive archive of images. Whilst making this project on the last day I made one single still life picture which later intrigued and fascinated me, it was an image of a damaged book… a cowboy novel. In 2010 I was able to return to the islands and make a work about found Bibles which were subsequently sequenced with the earlier pictures and published as the book Dust to Dust in 2014.
