DEVELOP Tube: Photography to Watch

The vast shifting dunes at Foveran Links, Menie, were once one of the few remaining examples of true wilderness in the UK. This dynamic landscape, a wonder of the world, has, however, been stabalised and sterilised, bulldozed and flattened into “The greatest golf course in the world” according to it's developer, Donald Trump.

"The Dunes" presents an intimate portrait of the vulnerable community and landscape on the Menie estate in Aberdeenshire. The residents speak not only of the ecological, environmental and political impact this controversial development has had on their unique and fragile land, but also of the deep personal and emotional scars left on their community as they are bullied and beaten into submission."
