Rose Moreno and Arthur Bouet

Lost Tales, a World in Between

In the most remote areas of Scotland, something buried keeps conversations going. Mystical beliefs, inherited from ancestors, that we only dare to whisper. Legendary creatures hidden in the lochs' depth, wandering at the heart of the woods or on the rocky shores of the freezing sea.

Rose Moreno and Arthur Bouet traveled to Scotland, to the Hebrides archipelago, one of the most sparsely populated regions of the country, seeking for truth. They came across natives who trusted them to carry their stories, whose major characters were called Selkies, Ghillie due or Kelpies. Dazzled, they investigated trying to gather the tangible traces of these confessions.

This is what they came back with.
