Self-taught photographer of Landscapes, Buildings, Heritage.
Off the beaten track in Scotland.
After reading Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh, Oliver went into conservation, and has spent his career preserving important archaeological sites around Scotland. His work takes him far from the beaten track to the many corners of Scotland most explorers don’t find. His photography considers the historical layers of a landscape: the many lives that have lived and worked in a single place for hundreds or even thousands of years. He is interested in architectural form and position within often brutal environments, and how historic design serves contemporary inhabitants. His photographs force the viewer to explore human impact on the environment and consider the importance of preserving these places for the use of many generations to come.
Oliver lives in Perthshire with his wife and two children, and enjoys nothing more than taking his ever-enthusiastic sidekick Harry (the Alaskan Malamute) for a yomp through the heather in search of new shots and angles.
