Drawn to The Land in French Magazine “ArMen”

I really enjoyed this interview, the piece is in depth and beautifully written (if my French can be trusted) and it’s excellent to see Drawn To The Land published over 12 pages in ArMen magazine.


10 From The North

Katherine Parhar has curated an exhibition at An Lanntair in Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis including my work Drawn To The Land. This is on show from 10th March – 14th April 2018.

This exhibition of new photographic work from Scotland and the Nordic countries showcases some of the most interesting contemporary imagery being made by female practitioners. The Scottish-based Wildfires collective features established names such as Patricia Macdonald with her work ‘Burnt Moorland: grouse shooting’ and Sophie Gerrard with her ‘Drawn to the Land’ series focusing on women involved with farming. The exhibition also includes a wide variety of approaches to image making, with new work by Karen Vaughan, Margaret Mitchell, Sylvia Grace Borda, Miriam Chefrad and Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte.

New photography from Nordic countries will also be represented, with Icelandic photographer Sigga Ella’s ‘First and Foremost I am’, Norwegian photographer Andrea Gjestvang’s work focusing on the women of the Faroe Islands, and Finnish photographer Iiu Susiraja whose work offers a surreal exploration of self-portraiture.

This exhibition is a collaboration between Dr Katherine Parhar of Wildfires and FÒCAS Scotland, Alex Boyd of An Lanntair and the Flow Festival of Photography.
