The Other Side of Town
This series focuses on my hometown Inverness - the 'capital' of the Scottish Highlands. My interest was in returning to the streets I knew well as a boy - exploring, observing and creating photographs from what I now found, while also reflecting on how the landscape has changed (or not). I chose to do a series of walks through different areas of the city - some with pre-planned routes, others allowing myself to wander and see where curiosity took me.
My aim was to collect visual impressions of my familiar surroundings, hopefully capturing an essence of the city today. I didn't plan photographs in advance, just instinctively reacted to the locations, conditions and my mood - letting the series develop naturally.
