The island archipelago of St Kilda (Gaelic: Hiort) is often celebrated as the most remote location in the British isles. Forty miles from the Outer Hebrides, the islands rise up dramatically from the Atlantic Ocean, the remains of a long extinct volcano. The main island of Hirta contains the highest sea cliffs in UK, and the remains of a village, its community evacuated in the 1930s after a millenium of continual human habitation on the island.
Today a new community has arisen in village bay, composed of national trust volunteers who conserve the remains, and several military installations which are normally excluded from the romantic narrative of St Kilda.The surrounding islands of Dùn, Soay and Boreray remain uninhabited, towering above the small boats which bring visitors to the islands, and home to thousands of nesting birds. Images from the series are available as limited edition silver prints, and as archival prints. Please get in touch for more information.
