Photographer apologises to ‘grim’ villagers
A London-based photographer has issued an unreserved apology to residents from a tiny Lochaber village after their home became the subject of a “grim” and “depressing” photo study in a national magazine.
Dozens of residents from Kinlochleven went online to condemn the feature and point out factual inaccuracies. The photographs were taken as part of an ongoing study by graduate photographer Joseph Fox and were featured in a youth lifestyle magazine.
The feature, entitled Scotland’s Shadows, claimed that the village is in a “dire economic state” and “boasts only one hotel, one pub, and a small store”.
