Scottish photographers Malley and Gillespie are collectively known as ‘Broad Daylight’, collaborating on a variety of projects alongside their individual practices. Malley’s background as a documentary photographer and Gillespie’s training as an illustrator has created a partnership that enables them to produce work ranging from commissioned portraiture and documentary photography, to advertising and creative imagery. From 1999 – 2005 they produced book jacket images for the crime novelist Ian Rankin and also worked with him on the major book project 'Rebus’s Scotland' – a publication highlighting the places that inspired the settings in Edinburgh and beyond for Rankin’s Rebus novels. 2009 saw them working on an exhibition called 'As Others See Us' – which portrayed a selection of noteworthy Scots.
