Synopsis

'As Others See Us' is based on a new photographic exhibition from Tricia Malley and Ross Gillespie, who together form the renowned partnership broad daylight. It forms part of Homecoming 2009, celebrating the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns' birth. The exhibition consists of 20 portraits of prominent and influential Scots, including Eddi Reader, Edwin Morgan, Peter Howson and Janice Galloway. The portraits capture a unique insight into the sitter, enhanced by the accompanying text, as each was asked to contribute their favourite poem from Robert Burns, and to explain why it is special to them and what they think it means to Scots today.

Award winning photographers Ross Gillespie and Tricia Malley are among Scotland's most experienced and insightful photographers. They have worked together for almost 20 yeas under the name of broad daylight and have an instinctive eye for capturing the character and personality behind their subject. Their work will be known to many through the front covers of Ian Rankin's famous Rebus novels (as well as the stunning photographs throughout 'Rebus's Scotland A Personal Journey'). Tricia's background as a documentary photographer combined with Ross's background as an illustrator has created an almost unique collaboration which allows art to frequently and successfully mimic life in a seriously powerful fashion. They have an enormous capacity for empathy with their subjects and as a result get well below the superficial.
