"On Saturday mornings, she’d stop in to the junk shop at the foot of Restalrig Road. Awkward,
ambling, finding the record bin, she’d slide her hungry hands between the album covers. Head
bowed and keeping to the beat, a sudden flash of black and white jolts her from her reverie. Her
cantering heart breaks into a gallop. The gaze of resistance stares her down.
She snaps her headphones off to take a closer look, flipping the album over in her small hand
and eyeing the song list. The black and white photograph: a square, a figure, and a tangled
mane. The top right hand corner of the album cover she reads - H o r s e s.
It is written."
Lesley Turnbull (2015)
Lesley Turnbull is a Scottish photographic artist who lives and works in Melbourne.
Through photography - sequential, fragmented or otherwise - Lesley explores the ambiguity
of human identity and the transformative potential of landscapes. Her recent body of work, shot
in Northern Iceland, speaks to an inherent tension between freedom and remoteness.
