• Since 2014, British photographer, artist, and author, Lottie Davies has labored extensively on the collection Quinn – an intricately researched and documented large-scale multimedia challenge that extends far past the gallery partitions. Quinn recounts the eponymous fictional story of a younger man, William Henry Quinn, who, in post-Second World Conflict Britain, walks from the south-west of England to the far north of Scotland, in what turns into an epic and symbolic journey. It is a meditation on grief, loss, loneliness, the human seek for which means, and the potential of redemption by means of time and panorama, pertinent throughout the ages.
