Three years ago, researchers fired whisky to the International Space Station as part of an experiment to see how the conditions in space change flavours. Next month, the whisky will return to Earth.

Scotland’s contribution to space research. Good job.

Once, in the days of time immemorial, there was a king of Greece who had thirty-three daughters. Each of these daughters rose up in revolt and murdered her husband. Perplexed as to how he had bred such rebels, but not wanting to kill his own flesh and blood, their princely father exiled them and set them adrift in a rudderless ship. Their ship was provisioned for six months. By the end of this period, the winds and tides had carried them to the edge of the known earth. They landed on an island shrouded in mist. As it had no name, the eldest of the killers gave it hers: Albina. When they hit shore, they were hungry and avid for male flesh. But there were no men to be found. The island was home only to demons. The thirty-three princesses mated with the demons and gave birth to a race of giants, who in turn mated with their mothers and produced more of their own kind. These giants spread over the whole landmass of Britain. There were no priests, no churches and no laws. There was also no way of telling the time.

After eight centuries of rule, they were overthrown by Trojan Brutus. The great-grandson of Aeneas, Brutus was born in Italy; his mother died in giving birth to him, and his father, by accident, he killed with an arrow. He fled his birthplace and became leader of a band of men who had been slaves in Troy. Together they embarked on a voyage north, and the vagaries of wind and tide drove them to Albina’s coast, as the sisters had been driven before. When they landed they were forced to do battle with the giants, led by Gogmagog. The giants were defeated and their leader thrown into the sea.
Whichever way you look at it, it all begins in slaughter. Trojan Brutus and his descendants ruled till the coming of the Romans. Before London was called Lud’s Town, it was called New Troy. And we were Trojans.

Some say the Tudors transcend this history, bloody and demonic as it is: that they descend from Brutus through the line of Constantine, son of St Helena, who was a Briton. Arthur, High King of Britain, was Constantine’s grandson. He married up to three women, all called Guinevere, and his tomb is at Glastonbury, but you must understand that he is not really dead, only waiting his time to come again.

The mythological bits I was talking about.

Those previous versions of herself were so distant now that remembering them was almost like remembering other people, acquaintances, young women whom she’d known a long time ago, and she felt such compassion for them. ‘I regret nothing,’ she told her reflection in the mirror, and believed it.

What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– There is something beautiful and scary at the same time how the photographs have the ability to imprison reality, change it, or even create a new one. A photographer is a demiurge, who not only creates but also discloses… particpates in other people’s lives, posseses the past captured by him.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– I was raised being surrounded by art. Studying fine arts and painting gave me some insight into classic and abstract art. I have a large selection of references ranging from Ancient culture, towards modern literature.

What do you most like to photograph?
– As noted by Jerry Uelsmann, “the camera is a fluid way of encountering that other reality..”. Photographers are naturally divided, according to their own inclinations.. I have never been able to capture the real world; I capture feelings, moods, that which is under the surface.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– Sarah Moon, Irina Ionesco, Paolo Roversi, Helmut Newton, Julia Margaret Cameron, Joel Peter Witkin…
