Photographic census of Hoy 2011-2013 by Pearl Sinclair
Pearl Sinclair has created a photographic census of Hoy parish. This wonderful body of work gives us a picture of Hoy here and now – archiving the present. Pearl extended the census to include the frequent visitors who come to Hoy regularly, keeping crofts in Hoy and renewing familial ties.
People hand-wrote their own histories around the images, an intimate portrait. Come by Hoy Kirk and look through the folder ‘Photographic Census of Hoy’ a very important part of our archive. Or if you can’t come by, you can check out the book – see at the end of this post.
The book of the collection can be ordered through Blurb….
