The images included in this book document a specific theme of "Angels of Scotland".
The photos bring to life a strength that lives on in each of these gravestones and sculptures. They seem indifferent to the elements that continue to wear at their surfaces and challenge their structural integrity. With each new passing year, nature continues to transform these cemeteries by painting a new palette on the weathered patina of each stone.
It is the collision and contrast of that ongoing confrontation that draws me to photograph these sites year after year. After eight years of documenting these cemeteries, my camera has recorded a small slice of Scotland’s history onto digital files. I have dedicated myself to preserving those memories and historic voices from the past to be handed on to share into the future.
