Ciara Menzies is a Scottish based photographer. Her work is story driven and this has led her to travel to a number of places,  'Herdsmen of Ethiopia' is a result of this. Ciara is a keen portriat photographer, taking great delight retelling people's stories through a series of images, using her photographs to show something of who they are, what makes them them. Since first using a disposable camera as a child she has been trying to capture the world around her.

Ciara has a deep love for colour, an understanding which was honed when she studied art and is something that informs her work. She is continually developing as a photographer with ongoing projects. Currently living in Edinburgh with lots to explore, she can usually be found with a camera in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.
