Biography

Nationality Scottish

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. In 2009 they created an internationally-touring exhibition and publication, As Others See Us inspired by the life and work of Robert Burns, which portrayed a selection of Scots drawn from the business, arts, and music industries.
