Tremendous Reality 1993
  • Scottish Art
This photograph is one from a commission undertaken by Tricia Malley for the first Scottish International Photography Festival, Fotofeis. It addressed the theme of 'family,' from a different angle, and looked at people who chose to be together. Her subject was the community of Cistercian Brothers at Nunraw Abbey, in Garvald, East Lothian. Malley took a combination of individual portraits, addressing both the spiritual and practical life of the isolated community. Here, the simplicity of the monastic dress and of the wooden crosses is emphasised and made strange by the mist and the impression of a chill wind.
