Land, Sea and Sky: Photographs from the Shetland Islands

In 2015 I joined a group of ornithologists working on an otherwise uninhabited island in the Shetlands, the UK's most northerly archipelago. While camping there, I observed the changing atmospheric states of the environment and heard about some of the challenges local wildlife are facing to survive. The resulting series explores themes of isolation and transience through a series of atmospheric photographs depicting the land, sea and sky of the Shetland Islands.

Land, Sea and Sky was exhibited in 2017 at Hot Numbers Coffee, Cambridge.
