not sure if anyone ever looks at my tumblr anymore, but here goes— tomorrow I’m flying back to the US for the first time in about a year. it feels like it’s been far too long since i’ve been back, and also too long since i’ve posted on here. There’s a reason for it. I’ve hesitated on oversharing a bunch of work that i’d like to eventually make its way into a small book Nell and I are working on featuring photos of mine with her writings. It will be about life in the far north of Scotland and other fun things. We just developed a truckload of film but won’t have access to a scanner for a while, so I made a ‘ghetto-scan’ of a slide from isle of Skye as a teaser for things to come. Embarrassing how low quality it is, but my 5d died and it’s hilarious to me that a medium format negative be reduced to a 500kb iphone jpeg.
in aberdeen (and any other coastal area), if your night hasn’t ended by 6am your best course of action is always to go to the beach.

nell and i recently discovered that reading scottish tombstones can be a bit like solving a puzzle.
