‘Welcome To’ is an exploration of how young women describe their life, living in close proximity to the Scottish/English border. Created during the Covid-19 world pandemic, the photographs open up a larger conversation about connection and modern life for the young women of the UK nowadays. Young Scottish and English women engaged in conversation with the photographer about their future, without ever meeting face-to-face. Transpiring from social media exchanges, concerns beyond independence or immigration followed, like the influence of social media on young girls or the benefits of living in a rural community. Their answers show that our similarities and differences extend beyond where an invisible boundary line is drawn.
