The work on show will feature photography by the four founding members of Document Scotland (Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, Colin McPherson, Stephen McLaren and Sophie Gerrard), along with work by six contemporary Scottish photographers (Radek Nowacki, Jenny Wicks, Martin Hunter, Giulietta Verdon-Roe, Sarah Amy Fishlock and Robert Ormerod) who have been invited to show images from projects either recently-completed or still in progress.

– with Jenny Wicksphotographer and visual artist for the SCCJR.

Jenny Wicks is a visual artist, whose work explores human nature, daily routines, people, their stories and their environment – how much of whom we are is determined by the communities in which we live. She has just completed the residency at The Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCR), Glasgow University where she explored key boundaries between innocent and guilty, researcher and researched, ‘us and them’, showing how the researchers’ use of criminological space resists and reproduces social hierarchies.
