This spring, Journeys to the Edge co-founder Tallulah travelled to Haida Gwaii in northern British Columbia to mount a photography exhibit. The event showcased photos from around the world that Tallulah has captured in her reporting travels with Roberta Staley to places like Haiti, Colombia, Soweto and Afghanistan.
The trip to Haida Gwaii was undertaken in large part to connect people living in areas like Haida Gwaii — where isolation can preclude access to artistic endeavours, shows and exhibits — with those from areas few have access to, such as Haiti or Afghanistan. As well, the trip was the chance for Tallulah to discover new individuals to photograph to include in her remarkable World People Project photography initiative.
The Haida Gwaii Observer did a write-up on Tallulah, Journeys to the Edge and the World People Project in early March, and we have included it here: Haida Gwaii Observer interviews Tallulah.

I spent this past summer in my birthplace of Scotland, photographing the people and places of that spectacular country — a nation that has blessed the rest of the world with whisky, tartan, the philosophy of Adam Smith and David Hume and the literary works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and J.K. Rowling.
I spent much of my time in Glasgow, which is home to a vibrant art scene, capturing images of this historical city, which is undergoing a cultural renaissance. I took photographs not only for my personal website, the World People Project, but captured images for a special photo essay for Montecristo, one of Canada’s must beautiful cultural magazines.
