Document Scotland are delighted to announce that to coincide with our first collaborative group exhibition, ‘Seeing Ourselves’, we’ve published a newspaper showcasing the fine documentary photography work from the show. A certain amount of the papers will be available for free at the gallery and exhibition, to thank you for making the effort to come along and see the show, but for those of you unable to travel to Fife for the show, the paper can be bought via this page for a nominal fee.
The work on show, and in the newspaper, will feature photography by the four founding members of Document Scotland (Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, Colin McPherson, Stephen McLaren and Sophie Gerrard), along with work by six contemporary photographers working in Scotland – Radek Nowacki, Jenny Wicks, Martin Hunter, Giulietta Verdon-Roe, Sarah Amy Fishlock and Robert Ormerod.
‘Seeing Ourselves’ aims to hold a mirror up to life in Scotland today and reflect some of the social, political, environmental and economic issues facing the country at this pivotal time in our shared history.
The newspaper is printed in full colour, over 24 pages, and features a double page spread of images by each of the 10 photographers involved in the exhibition, there is also an editorial essay by Docment Scotland.
Document Scotland is a not for profit registered company, and all proceeds of the sale go back into financing this website, and helping fund furthers shows and publications. Many thanks for your interest and support, we greatly appreciate it.
‘Seeing Ourselves’ will open at FOTOSPACE Gallery, Fife on June 3 until July 30th, 2013. The show has been curated by Document Scotland, in association with Colin Cavers of the Fife Photo Group.
We’ve decided to showcase some of our many projects and work in a new Document Scotland publication, a 16 page colour newspaper, with the catchy title of DOC001. Primarily designed and published for our own use, we’re so happy with the look of it that we thought we’d also offer them to the readers of the site.
Comprising of four photo essays, ‘SNAW’ by Stephen McLaren, ‘The DUNES’ by Sophie Gerrard, ‘Catching The Tide’ by Colin McPherson and on the sports pages at the back Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert’s ‘Life In The 3rd’. Each photostory is accompanied by writing from the photographer. But if the pictures are not enough for you, then there is also an essay ‘Focusing on the Flux’ by author and journalist Allan Brown. All pages were designed courtesy of Cabin8Design.
We would love to be able to give away free the newspaper to all those who are interested, but we thought we’d ask for a small cover price. Many of you may have enjoyed the photo essays Document Scotland have published on the site, enjoyed the articles we’ve sourced, the writing we’ve done, and by purchasing a copy of the paper it helps fund the site for another year, helps keep it all going.
