If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

British photography: Alex Boyd « Previous | |Next »
May 31, 2013

Alex Boyd is a Scottish photographer based in the West Coast of Scotland. Though he is best known for his conceptual and figurative landscape photography, most notably his series "Sonnets", I find his experimenting with the wet plate collodion process with respect to landscapes very interesting.

I have in mind the body of work known as The Point of the Deliverance, which is the name (translation of a Gaelic name Pointe a' Tárrthaidh) given to a prominent rock which sits in the natural harbour of Portacloy, in the remote North West of Ireland. This is one of the last true wilderness areas in Western Europe.

It’s part of a much larger project to document the edges of the Gaelic speaking world.
