The Scottish National Portrait Gallery Document Scotland The Ties That Bind
  Document Scotland is a photographic collective comprising of Colin McPherson, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, Sophie Gerrard and Stephen McLaren — four Scots-born photographers, each exponents of documentary photography. This exhibition takes place one year after the Scottish Referendum. It features 75 photographs of, and about, Scotland and its people created by this photography group. Their work has been published in various international magazines and newspapers, in addition to featuring in exhibitions around the UK. 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.

Read more about the exhibition, take a look at some exhibition highlights and find out more about our four artists: Colin McPherson, Sophie Gerrard, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert and Stephen McLaren.
