John Maher - Social Documentary
In the last of this year's talks, RPS Scotland introduces John Maher Social Documenter.
Former Buzzcock's drummer, John relocated from his home town of Manchester to the Isle of Harris in 2002, where he lives and works today . He says it took him seven years to discover a way of photographing the islands in a style that interested him. John created a new way of interpreting the Hebridean landscape, with a refreshing and innovative series of long exposure photographs. – all shot during the dead of night, under the light of a full moon. John’s unique photographic style and creative use of additional light quickly gained a following in the Outer Hebrides and beyond. His photographs of decaying man-made objects set against a backdrop of stunning Hebridean landscapes have been published in national newspapers, photography magazines and numerous online articles. This YouTube video shows John's work and thoughts.
