Lynda Laird

‘I’m interested in the idea that there is memory stored in landscape, in places and in buildings. Lewis is seen as this wilderness, a bleak empty nothingness – that’s what a lot of the developers talked about it as – but for the people that live there it’s in them.’

Lynda Laird is a photographer and filmmaker who uses the land itself to make images. For her Comharradh series she submerged exposed paper into the waterways of Lewis – a Scottish island under threat from developers – to create unique prints that capture the abstract beauty of the moors and the culture was born from this landscape.
