This body of work is a study on youth culture in the Highlands of Scotland. I spent 5 years living in Scotland, during which time my best friends were from a small town called Kingussie in the heart of the Cairngorms. I was always fascinated by their stories of growing up in such a unique environment. As a city boy, I could associate with some of their tales of girls, drinking and parties – but then there were some stories that I found incredible – experiences that I found hard to imagine a city kid ever really understanding. With this in mind, I have tried to pick up on these conflicting elements; on one hand the embracing of the landscape, and on the other the gradual encroachment of more mainstream social and cultural issues.
