Dust to Dust


Due largely to topography and depopulation the Scottish islands have an unusually high number of abandoned and derelict houses. During 2004 and 2005, using Ordnance Survey maps I methodically traveled throughout the Outer Hebrides and Orkneys documenting these empty buildings and produced an extensive archive of images. On the last day of production I made a 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 later sequenced with the earlier pictures and published as the book Dust to Dust in 2014.
