Residency artists in Orkney next week

Artists Brittonie Fletcher and Frances Scott have been selected to participate on Stills’ Orkney–Edinburgh Creative Residency, sponsored by Highland Park Single Malt Whisky.

This is a research residency inspired by Stills’ current exhibition of photography and films by Orcadian artists Gunnie Moberg and Margaret Tait. Research made while on Orkney will be shared with Stills’ and Highland Park’s audiences.

Between 8th–15th October Brittonie and Frances will begin the exchange on Orkney, supported by photographer and Gunnie Moberg archive worker Rebecca Marr. They will then return to Edinburgh where they will have access to Stills’ facilities.


Brittonie FletcherBrittonie Fletcher is a photographer from Boston, USA. She moved to Edinburgh in 2010 to complete an MFA in Contemporary Fine Art Photography and has remained in the city since.

She enjoys working in many forms of visual art, but is best known for her alternative photography practice, which employs hybrid techniques using digital and chemical processes. Brittonie has exhibited internationally, including the Rayko Center Photography, USA; Photo Ireland, Dublin 
and Blanco Negro Gallery, Sydney.

Her work has been acquired by major collections, including Preus Museum, the Norwegian National Museum of Photography and the National Library of Scotland.

Frances ScottFrances Scott is a photographer and designer from Orkney.

A graduate of Glasgow School of Art, her photographic work often focuses on journeys – from explorations of Toronto’s tangled ravine system to her documentation of Scotland’s A9 road.

Her projects are often resolved as books, and her work has been featured in Grafik Magazine and the photography journal NOTES: Letters to Photography.

After graduating in 2014, Frances returned to Orkney where she co-founded MÓTI, a collective which seeks to unite and motivate art graduates based in the islands. She currently works as a photography technician at Glasgow School of Art, returning home frequently to maintain her connection with Orkney.
