The second big trip of the Summer was being Artist in Residence with the http://www.clippertonproject.com/ sailing around the Northern Isles of Scotland. I have spoke a lot about this in previous blogs but not at how influenced I have been from these places, these tiny uninhabited Islands, the remote inhospitable places right at the edge of the world.
Being back in the Studio, I have started working on my images from my time spent on board around these Islands. This year i will be working with the title ‘Edges’ exploring exposed and remote places on the egde of the world through visual photographs, prints and experimenting with drawing and paintings. Bringing out the unique atmosphere and wild untamed nature of them that most people do not get to see.
Here’s some photographs from my ‘Edges’ Series. You can also find them on my website with new work on http://www.ellisoconnor.com
These photos were all taken from my time spent sailing around the entire Coast of Shetland and the Islands of Mousa, Bressay, Noss, Whalsay, Out Skerries, Fetlar, Unst, Yell, Ramna Stacks, and Papa Stour.
