Portfolio: The Legacy Project 1024 683 Jason Friend

It has been seven years since Telephoto.com founder, Jason Friend, embarked on a trip to photograph the prehistoric landscape of the Orkney Islands located off the northern tip of Scotland. This eventful trip was to be the first every shoot for the Legacy Project, a fascinating not-for-profit endeavour to capture the mystifying stone remains of prehistoric sites scattered across the British Isles.

Moving beyond a mere appreciation of the aesthetic, the aim of The Legacy Project is not simply to record the physical structure of these stone circles, but to instil a complete emotional experience which conveys the ethereal nature of these megalithic sites. Through this photographic journey, Jason wants the ancient spirit of the landscape to wash over you – for you to think, to feel, to imagine what once took place where the stones remain.

In order to capture the stark and dramatic tone of these mystical landscapes, the project is being shot entirely in black and white using a mixture of infrared film, and infrared converted digital cameras.

The Legacy Project continues to lead Jason along a fascinating path of discovery across the British Isles in search of the remnants of Neolithic Britain.
