Tanera (Ar Dùthaich) focuses on a tiny island off the West coast of Scotland, the symbiotic relationship it has with the local mainland, and communities who call the area home. The photographs are a ‘portrait of place’, shown through the people and the marks and effects they have on the landscape around them. Given the island’s small size, these traces often exist together, in close proximity, so you can see the effects of families living on the land 200 years ago, right next to what is happening today.

Portrait of Place

“Having made this work whilst living and working on the island, my intention was to elaborate on these difficulties, exploring widely held romantic notions about the Scottish landscape, whilst also trying to get under the surface to the vernacular level. The images attempt to show a ‘portrait of place’ through views, details and portraits of the people who contribute to the fabric of the island. I’ve always been fascinated by the way that humans leave traces and marks evident within the landscape; a calling card of their existence. Over time these traces build-up, layered on top of each-other forming a kind of catalogue of existence like a palimpsest. This becomes particularly evident in smaller, self-contained or continually populated landmasses, such as Tanera Mhor. With this work I wanted to explore both this rich past, as a Viking sanctuary, and a fishing and crofting community, and it’s current state and the people who are leaving their traces today. I felt in a privileged position; neither outsider, nor truly local resident- engaged anthropologically but still able to access a degree of objectivity. The intention was to encourage the viewer to reflect on the relationships evidenced and challenge some tropes about rural life.” Kevin Percival
