I was so excited to receive my image book from PhotoBox, although too late to submit for college I now have a visual record of the process I went through during my artist residency at #TYA (Tweeddale Youth Action, Peebles) as part of the Working Perspectives Project initiated by Crossing Borders artist group and Peebles Creative Place 2014.

As I struggled with a clear identity for my work during this residency it is a great relief to see how the work progressed and came together, in the comforting form of a book, richly referencing the young people and their words – giving them a public voice. #TYA #nofear #dedication #dave
