The Ties That Bind

Designer Cavan Convery has worked with the photographic collective Document Scotland to present an exhibition that explores Scotland’s social landscapes at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh. Collaborating with the four photographers and the curator he helped establish the best way to display their 75 works, personalising each member’s diverse area of interest while maintaining a unity throughout the exhibition.

The exhibition, Document Scotland: The Ties That Bind, takes place one year after the Scottish Referendum. While the work touches on the political landscape around the Referendum, the images do not affirm any one position, but seek to portray a multiplicity of views that portray the complex challenges and subtle nuances surrounding the larger debate.

The collectives work has been published in various international magazines and newspapers, in addition to featuring in exhibitions around the UK. They are passionate about documentary photography and are committed to photographing Scotland at this pivotal moment in history.

The show runs until 24 April 2016.
