Call of the Wild
Laura Hynd's grandfather built a simple vacation cabin in the Scottish hills at the spot where he first met his wife. Without electricity or running water, it is a place where you are thrown back on your own resources to survive. After her grandfather's death in 2010, the family spread his ashes around the cabin. Hynd reworks the unique ambiance of this spot and the passing away of the family patriarch into a new legacy, in which she combines her own photos of the cabin and its idyllic surroundings with stills from the film that her grandfather made in 1947 of his first meeting with his future wife. Stemming from her fascination for the wilderness, she created the work at a time when she wanted to flee society.
