After a tragic family loss, photographer Haydee Thompson needed a time out. So at the end of July she took 3 planes, one bus, a train and then a taxi, to rent a manual car with the wheel on the opposite side, drove on an opposite side through the Scotland highlands to catch a ferry and hired another taxi to the Outer Hebrides to join her friends and their sail boat The Makara.  Their travels together took them around the top of Scotland to the Orkney Islands where historic gale force winds determined a heroic rescue by the Coast Guard. They then sailed through the outskirts of a hurricane over a treacherous North Sea to Holland then France where they could catch their breaths and fix the boat before continuing south to cross a notorious and choppy Bay of Biscay to Spain.  

 

"I realized quickly, I was not a sailor and felt kind of useless trying to be, but I had my camera. This photo exhibition is about my 3 friends, the real deal bad asses, who by self inflicted adversity shined with bravery, humor, and creativity throughout some pretty harry situations."

This show is also dedicated to a certain gregarious tribe of local free-spiritedness! -You know who you are!

 

Two hours of raw moving footage of the adventure will be projected during the opening. Its a "Don't Miss!"
