Scottish farmer Sarah Boden poses for a photo at her farm -- the Sandamhor Farm -- on the Isle of Eigg. She is one of six women photographed by Sophie Gerrard.
Shears and other tools stored on a wooden wall at Brackley Farm, located in the Scottish village of Dalmally in Argyll and Bute.
After living in London, Gerrard returned to her native Scotland with a sense of nostalgia. She wanted to explore the landscape and understand the people responsible for maintaining it.

Lorraine Luescher comes from a long line of Scottish farmers. Seen here is her father's compass.
"When I am in this environment, I feel very insignificant," Luescher told Gerrard. "I feel I am part of something much bigger. I'm just here for a very short time and it's the opposite of feeling in any way that I have power over the land."

McCall-Smith told Gerrard she believes she has a moral obligation to leave her land in as good, if not better, condition than it was when she inherited it.
