Dust to Dust

2010

Due to depopulation and topographical reasons the Scottish islands have an unusually high number of derelict houses. During 2004 and 2005, using Ordnance Survey maps and binoculars, I traveled throughout the Outer Hebrides and Orkneys documenting these abandoned buildings and produced an extensive archive of images. Whilst making this project 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 decided to return to the islands and make a work about found Bibles which were sequenced with the earlier pictures and published as the book-work Dust to Dust in 2014.
