An ongoing, very personal project, Little Red explores landscape, isolation, size, and perspective within the seasonal cycles. The initial idea behind the project was to frame the landscape in a way that emphasised its sheer size, wild and remoteness by using a small figure captured in each frame, often gazing out to the land or lochs, or moving through the spaces. The small female figure also represents the idea that women are intrinsic in all environments, the colour red a warning beacon of her existence.
The winter in Argyll is a bleak and beautiful season, full of washed out, muted colours and often overcast skies, Spring can be surprisingly lush and green, Summer has occasional but brilliantly endless blue skies. By dressing the figure in red, she is a distinct presence throughout the images, her size emphasising the sense of isolation in a vast space.
The first four seasons were documented in Argyll. In 2015 our family located to Greenock and the project will continue using urban and built environments.
