Socks and Sandals
An Exploration into the Scottish Abroad
2018




As part of Irn Bru and Sarcasm series.

Focusing on the Scottish commonplace; this project aims to propel Scotland from it's usual stylistic clichés and encourages it to be viewed in a more tender manner. The 35mm documentary film photography is housed within a clean and contemporary design language, that elevates the perception of Scotland to something more present and creatively enticing while retaining its own quirks and identity. This book focuses on the element of Scots Abroad.

With the help of Scottish female poets, who created poetry based on the images, the aura of the publication was strengthened. Their work helped to further convey the tone of the project; a lighthearted and celebrated view of everyday life in Scotland with the famous sense of Scottish humor.

With special thanks to the poets; Catherine Smith, Wendy Jordan,Katie Rogen And Vicky Allen.
