Scotland: Fairy Pools 2
I spent 14 days of intensive photographic research taking 10 000 photographs while
travelling around the coast of Scotland. This includes the incredible architecture in ancient
cities; amazing, magical landscapes of heather shrouded moorlands, expansive glens with grass
covered hills and lowlands, and black and red mountains; and magnificent castles. Scotland is a
part of my cultural heritage. Fairy Pools 2 is a part of a photographic series. It is a merging of my
artistic and academic skills as a visual arts researcher. It is similar to grounded theory (Glaser &
Strauss, 1967) used for my academic research wherein I let Scotland tell me what photographs
needed to be taken and my photographic eye knew when to take the photograph from my
years of experience as a photographer.
Each of the photographs tells a visual story. As I continuously edited my photographs for
months while making files in folders, I asked myself: What was my experience of Scotland? How
can I represent this experience so that it has the feeling of what each inspiring photograph had
when I took the shot? It is a reliving and recreating of experience while working with specialty
silver papers and creating triptychs, diptychs and other layouts to photographically tell the
stories. The 19 limited edition colour archival quality giclée photographic prints are the result of
my photographic Scotland experience.
