Photographer plans to capture 100 weeks of Scotland

Waiting for Video...

FROM Scottish comedians wrestling in a converted church to the remote outpost of Ardnamurchan Point, an Edinburgh photographer has started an online project to create a ‘snapshot of the country’.

Alan McCredie began the ‘one hundred weeks of scotland’ website in October last year, and it will conclude in Autumn 2014. McCredie’s goal is to chronicle two years of Scottish life in the run-up to the independence referedum.

The website consists of weekly photo essays that cover all aspects of Scottish life, from the buzz and noise of the cities to the peaceful and wild Scottish countryside.

McCredie says ‘one hundred weeks...’ is intended to show all sides of the country over the next two years. On the site, he says: “Whatever the result of the vote Scotland will be a different country afterward. These images will show a snapshot of the country in the run up to the referendum.

“The photos will be of all aspects of Scottish culture - politics, art, social issues, sport and anything else that catches the eye.”

McCredie’s subjects vary hugely week-to-week, from gian teddy bears at Waverley Station to intimate Burns suppers, from Scottish art and performance to traditional festive celebrations.
