As the day moves ever closer to when the people of Scotland decide whether they wish to live in a nation independent of the rest of the United Kingdom, I am travelling across the country, taking the political temperature and looking for clues as to what the result of the historic referendum on 18th September might be.

I will be in Scotland right up until the vote on the 18th and also aim to capture the national mood in the 24 hours after the voting finishes and the result is announced. My photography tires to show the diversity of Scotland: from its towns and cities to rural areas, from north to south and across the breadth of the land. I will be following politicians and people alike, watching, listening and documenting as I go.

If you have any information about events, people or places relevant to the referendum, please get in touch and let me know what you think might be interesting for me to photograph. My hope is to build as complete a picture as possible of the events of September 2014.
