Document Scotland’s latest publication
Formed in 2012 Document Scotland is a collective of four Scottish documentary photographers: Colin McPherson, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, Sophie Gerrard and Stephen McLaren, brought together by a common vision to witness and photograph the important and diverse stories within Scotland at one of the most important times in our nation’s history.
The four photographers work on their own self-initiated projects, as well as undertaking assignments for clients worldwide, helping them to achieve the photographic project needs.
Document Scotland are pleased to announce their third publication: DOC003. Following on from their two acclaimed and fast-selling newspapers, DOC003 is a digital publication – otherwise known as a magazine app!
Developed in association with acclaimed Glasgow-based design company Start Digital, it is available as a download through Apple’s App Store and has been designed exclusively to be viewed on the iPad and iPad Mini. And the best part of it – apart from the stunning photography and sleek design – it’s absolutely free!
DOC003 brings you a story from each of the four Document Scotland photographers. Some of the content is exclusive and new, such as Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert’s depiction of the Antonine Wall entitled ‘Edge of Empire’ whilst Sophie Gerrard’s intimate portrait of life at the Tunnock’s factory in Uddingston gets the full interactive treatment it so richly deserves. Stephen McLaren’s series on the dookits of Glasgow and Colin McPherson’s timeless photographs of Scotland’s last salmon net fishermen complete the set. Each story is complimented and embellished with audio content and links to other, relevant websites. There are also four stand-alone photographs with individual stories by each photographer.
The partnership with Start Digital is part of Document Scotland’s strategy of working in partnership with like-minded people and organisations, whether it’s an individual photographer, gallery or institution, business or educational establishment. We hope to be able to announce more exciting collaborations in the very near future.
