Frances Scott is a photographer from Orkney who lives and works in Glasgow. Her work often focusses on journeys, from explorations of Toronto’s ravine system to her documentation of Scotland’s A9 road, and since 2016 has been working on a long-term project to walk the coastlines of Orkney. After graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 2014, Frances returned to Orkney where she became one of the founding members of Móti, a collective which seeks to unite and motivate early-career artists based in the islands. In 2019 she was one of the selected artists in the group show ‘AMBIT: Photographies from Scotland’ at Stills Gallery in Edinburgh, celebrating new and diverse approaches to photographic image-making. She was the winner of the 2021 FLOW Photofest Commission, a biennial international photography festival held across the Highlands and Islands. ‘Undertow’ is her first book, published by Another Place Press in 2020.
