Katharine MacDaid Book launch & Signing
Please join us in the Bookshop and meet photographer Katharine MacDaid who is launching her self published photobook The Fireweed Turns.
The Fireweed Turns takes place one summer in Alaska. Katharine MacDaid rented a jeep, bought a sleeping bag and a road map and set off with some halfremembered place names in a notebook. Alone in the landscape, MacDaid was both in awe and fearful of the desire that drove her.
Made to resemble a storybook, The Fireweed Turns considers the psychological
power of Landscape. It is a story of shame and desire, about what is hidden and
what is revealed.
Katharine MacDaid is a Belfast - born photographer, living and working between London and Donegal. MacDaid grew up in the Sultanate of Oman, America, Northern Ireland and London. After graduating with an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art, she moved back to Oman for several years to make the work Of Calling Shapes and Beckoning Shadows. Since returning to the UK she has begun a long-term project considering questions of landscape, belonging and Irish identity.
