Sarah, Isle of Eigg, 2015 from the series Drawn To The Land, 2014

Sophie Gerrard

Having grown up on Eigg, Sarah recently moved back to the island, deciding to leave London and her job as a music journalist so that she could farm. While reconciling her childlike wonder about the place, Sarah is acutely aware of the challenges island farming brings. She keeps a diary of her days, a mixture of factual information, events of the day and personal feelings of joy, along with crushing disappointment.
