The opening evening of Beyond The Border at Impressions Gallery in Bradford on Thursday 3rd July was a great success. This exhibition features my ongoing project Drawn To The Land: Women working the Scottish landscape.
Curated by Anne McNeil, Director of Impressions Gallery, this group exhibition is up until the end of September. Annie Lyden, International Curator of Photography at The Scottish National Portrait Gallery opened the exhibition.
New Focus also interviewed us for a short film of the exhibition, details of which will come soon.
Set against the backdrop of the historic referendum on Scotland’s Independence, Beyond the Border brings together four Scottish photographers, each with a distinctive view of a nation in the midst of intense debate about its future.
This international premiere – one of the most significant shows of new Scottish photography in a generation – aims to challenge clichés and explore the country, its people and identity.
Sophie Gerrard’s Drawn to the Land is an intimate look at the role woman play in shaping the rural Scottish landscape. From Highland crofters to Lowland farmers, Gerrard explores how their lives interrelate with the land in which they live and work.
The exhibition is open until the 27th September.
