French photojournalist, Laetitia Vancon took these stunning photos of the Outer Herbrides because she wanted to record the lives of young people living there and their relationship to the place where they live. She started taking pictures for ‘At the End of the Day’ in January 2016 and the subjects featured are between the ages of 18 and 35. She writes: ‘The first tableau of this series seeks to reconcile the insular nature of these youths’ lives with the expansive and idyllic paysage of the Hebridean Isles. A poetic and alluring invitation for the viewer to listen to the silence, feel the absence, and see the emptiness’.
