Common Ground was published to accompany the exhibition of the same name held at Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow. Including two photo essays from each Document Scotland member, Sophie Gerrard, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, Colin McPherson and Stephen McLaren, ‘Common Ground’ takes a look at contemporary Scotland as the country stands on the verge of making a political decision which, whatever the outcome, will resonate through the ages. From the common riding festivals of the Scottish Borders to the women farmers who work the land, a walk along the Scottish-English border or a car road trip through the streets and daily life of Scotland, this publication showcases new projects completed with assistance from Creative Scotland, for our current Street Level Photoworks exhibition. This publication also introduces work by the Welsh photography collective A Fine Beginning – James O Jenkins, Abbie Trayler-Smith, Gawain Barnard and Jack Latham, work which can also be seen in the ‘Common Ground’ exhibition.

About the Collective
Formed in 2012, Document Scotland is a collective of three Scottish documentary photographers, Jeremy Sutton-Hibert, Colin McPherson and Sophie Gerrard, 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 Scotland’s history.
