We are small under this huge sky

Whenever I return to Orkney I am always impressed by how huge the sky and the sea are compared to us humans. The landscape is mostly flat but we are still dwarfed by it. I made a small series of photographs showing small people in large landscapes while I was on my travels. I feel like the island life can be quite isolating sometimes and that some of these photographs portray this quite well.

The High Island

If you compare it to the landscape of the other Orkney islands, the island of Hoy stands alone. The Orkney Mainland has rolling hills and bright green fields bursting with life. Hoy is an ominous shadow looming over it.

I am back where the wind is

The sand on the beaches here is white and glitters, the remnants of sea shells ground to dust. Cliffs are layer on layer of coloured sand stacked up and compressed to rock. Standing on the cliff, I can still recognise the pattern that the last tide left in the sand below.
