Stuart Franklin

Organic Pig Farming, Elgin

About this artwork

Here, Franklin has photographed an organic pig farm in the North East of Scotland. With her pink fleshy skin, oversized ears and twitchy snout the pig in the foreground is the main focal point within the desolate, muddy landscape. It is part of a series of photographs commissioned by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in 2007 to capture the diversity of Scottish farming, ranging from large managed estates to family allotments. The photographer, Stuart Franklin, traced the environmental damage caused by intensive forestry in the Trossachs and the impact of mobile phone masts on the landscape near Montrose.
