Barra Beyond the Blue is a photography project by Malena Persson. It documents life and the vast barren lands; it investigates the relationship between the island and the people living there. The sea often plays an important part in a photograph's narrative, The sea often plays an important part in a photograph's narrative, but is not majorly depicted in the imagery. It is hinted. It sits firmly on the shoreline of an image. This small island has a lot more on offer than the mesmerizing colour of the sea; which is what the travel guide books so often advertise.
The project is ongoing since November 2015, with the aim to become a published piece of documentary; a comprehensive photo story on this rural and isolated part of Scotland.
