Having been a master of the crowd-shot since her time studying at Edinburgh College of Art, Jane Stockdale has now published a zine with Workhorse Press and Warriors Studio , to commemorate the year passed since the Scottish referendum.
As she writes at the opening of the publication, the photographs “document what happened in Glasgow and Edinburgh around the time of the referendum,” for both the Yes and No campaigns. Jane’s photographs have incredible energy to them and printed in black and white, they convey a more profound sense of atmosphere than one could have imagined, adrenaline running through every page.
Jane says: “If you were a photographer in Scotland you couldn’t not document what was happening. The atmosphere was electric. We wanted to make this zine to capture that energy.”
