Lauren MacNeish - Lauren MacNeish

I like to photograph the visual stories of the places I go and the the things I see but this site tends to be dedicated to the landscapes and cityscapes that surround me, and a whole lot of them feature mountains in some context.

When I was a kid, my Dad used to take us on car trips to scenic places in Scotland. I remember sitting in the back of the car driving to places like Loch Lomond, Callander, or Pitlochry and I always had a fascination with the mountains.

Mountains tend to go hand-in-hand with rural places, certainly in Scotland - which is where I am from. So this fascination as a kid has turned into a real love in my adult years. I never feel more at home than when I am surrounded by mountains. I'm intrigued by their shapes and textures. I'm fascinated by their ever-changing attributes based on the seasons and light. Stepping into the Scottish Highlands is like taking a secret passageway that juxtaposes itself from city life. The Highlands are wild yet beautiful; empty yet majestic. The mountains, lochs and landscapes evoke feelings of belonging, and we all need a bit of that every now and then.
