Cows at John Rae's House

Artist: 
Nancy Rommes

"John Rae is an important figure in Orkney history. The house where he was born is now a lonely, decaying ruin on the shore. We photographed the interior, but the leaking roof and the rotten floorboards gave me no confidence to explore, and the masses of bird droppings raised fears of Tularemia – or worse – in spite of the masks we wore. I had to leave. Exiting, I saw these cows that had approached while we were inside. They were such a sweet and gentle contrast to the eerie interior of John Rae's house that I felt compelled to photograph them. I love their expressions that convey interest – mixed with a little trepidation and confusion – and the background gives a good sense of the Orkney landscape." - Nancy Rommes
