Famous Scot's Project

Perth Scotland

Twenty years of high level photography have taken me around the world and opened doors not many are lucky enough to see through. During recovery from a life changing, and threatening illness, I realised the importance of a strong sense of community in a healthy society. 'The strength of a nation lies in its sense of community, the heart of a nation in its people and the soul of a nation in its history'. My nation of Scotland has forgotten its history of remarkable invention, endeavour and exploration. I am creating a series of photographic essays in the footsteps of Famous Scot's to bring into view the historical success of our nation. This educational resource, aimed at secondary school level, is a reminder of the challenge faced by our ancestors, Effort In=Reward Out

"Not to know what happened before you were born is to be a child forever. For what is the time of a man, except it be interwoven with that memory of ancient things of a superior age?"

Marcus Tullius Cicero 106 BC to 43 BC
