My Dad and I at the Calanish Stones

Megolithic Maynards

I spent years – probably literally – at the Calanish Stones in Lewis. I’ve photographed them and the people drawn to them hundreds of times. People react to the stones in the most extraordinary, bizarre and liberated ways.

This is one of the very few times when I appear in my pictures of Calanish performers. I went last year with my 88-year-old Dad on a tour of our old Highlands haunts. 

It was my Dad who got me interested in photography. His pictures are very different to mine. He wants to get the people out of the picture, I always want to put them in.
