Nobody’s Home by photographer and former Buzzcocks drummer John Maher captures abandoned crofts from across the Outer Hebrides.

In 2002, John relocated from his hometown of Manchester to the Isle of Harris, where he lives and works today. Maher’s photographs of decaying man-made objects set against a backdrop of stunning Hebridean landscapes. Initially photographed in the dead of night, under the light of a full moon, many of his night photographs involved lighting the interiors of old buildings, vehicles and boats scattered around. In several instances he would return during daylight hours to shoot the interiors of abandoned croft houses he’d visited the night before.

Everything Flows is a specially curated coastal exhibition trail, programmed by Street Level Photoworks in partnership with regional venues and supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21.
