West chronicles life on the West coast of Scotland, submersing the viewer in a nostalgic, memory-fuelled journey. Finlayson’s work captures the extraordinarily ordinary human environments and objects found on the often-remote coastline. West stems from the photographer’s holidays on the West coast in his youth. The viewer is encouraged to explore and project their own memories of past adventures on the images. In this, they can create their own narrative relating to their experiences of travel and trips, remembering the small details that may have otherwise become lost to time. West is a culmination of Finlayson’s skills to date and serves as a testament to the personal, subdued style of work he enjoys creating.
