该作品展现了‘Glas-allt-Sheil’和它周边的四季景色。Glas-allt-Sheil是位于巴尔莫勒尔庄园(凯恩戈姆山脉,苏格兰高地)的小屋,更确切地说是位于Loch Muick海岸边。这个小屋归英国女王伊丽莎白二世所有,由维多利亚女王于1868年建造,她命名这间小屋为“Glassalt”,译为“遗孀的房子”,当她的丈夫阿尔伯特王子死后,她逃离到此居住。

This project documents the subject ‘Glas-allt-Sheil’ and its surrounding landscape over the four seasons. Glas-allt-Sheil is a bothy based in the Balmoral Estate (Cairngorms, Scottish Highlands), on the shores of Loch Muick to be precise. This bothy is owned by Queen Elizabeth II, however was built by Queen Victoria in 1868. She called it ‘Glassalt’, translating to ‘widow’s house’ where she would escape following the death of her husband, Albert, Prince Consort.

这个作品简单但却引起人的好奇心,展现了苏格兰气候对景观的神奇影响,特别是当季节变化时。同时,它反映了苏格兰特有的主题:小屋文化、喜怒无常的天气和著名的芒罗山,和作为背景的洛赫纳加山脉。此外,照片中的植被也具有重要的意义,他们体现了季节性的变化。

Being intrigued by the impact Scotland’s climate has on the landscape, especially when the season are so defined, this project is simply about curiosity. It focusses on a subject which identifies a lot about Scotland; bothy culture, moody weather and the famous munro, Lochnagar as a backdrop. Furthermore, trees were of significant importance for the project as they demonstrate seasonal changes.

在不同的季节里,摄影师都会来到同一个地点进行拍摄,其拍摄点位于一块岩石上,这块岩石在长草地中显得尤为突出,并且从这里可以直接看到小屋。在每个季节里摄影师都需要等待最理想的条件:傍晚光线较低且多云的天气,因为这样的情况最能表达出凯恩戈姆山脉和苏格兰的生动氛围。

The project was achieved by returning to the same location, once a season. The shooting spot was on top of a recognisable rock – protruding from the long grass – which has a direct viewpoint of the bothy. Waiting for the ideal conditions each season – low, evening light and partially cloudy – conveys the vivid atmosphere of the Cairngorms and Scotland in general.
