I’ve Always Been A Cowboy In...

In 1993, I relocated from my native homeland of Scotland to the United States, where I have spent over half of my life.

Being from somewhere else, the unfamiliar continent and uncertainty of my opposing duality is what stemmed this ongoing project, from an almost naive and subjective documentation of road trip culture.

I've Always Been a Cowboy In My Heart, inspired by the lyrics of the Bill Callahan song, 'I'm New Here', deals with my fascination of everyday occurrences in the social landscape, and explores the spaces between clarity and imperfection, composing a personal slice of America.

When put into a photographic context, the aesthetics convey recurring visions of irony, scrutiny, absurdity and empathy, transforming the banal into a nostalgic connection to myself and my background.

Book coming August 2019 on Yoffy Press.
