Mhairi Law is a photographer and artist based in Edinburgh, focusing her practice mainly in medium-format documentary and landscape photography which explores environmental and social themes.

Mhairi used her residency with Stills primarily to concentrate on developing her project work based on the Isle of Lewis, producing a series of landscape images which explore the way in which the people of the island have interacted with the land.

Her work created whilst on the residency culminated in an exhibition at An Lanntair Arts Centre on the Isle of Lewis which opened in September 2015. She has since been selected as one of the finalists for the Jill Todd Photographic Award, the exhibition for which opens at Stills: Centre for Photography on 6th November 2015.
