GUISER, n. "in modern times one of a party of children who go in disguise from door to door at various festivals, esp. Halloween" - from a Dictionary of the Scots Language.
This series presents children during guising at Halloween in Scotland, displaying the children's richness of imagination as well as the complexity of their childhood worlds revealed in their choices of costume.
Guisers go round the neighbours' doors on Halloween, showing off their costumes and doing a party piece in return for nuts, sweets and fruit during a night of community and sharing.
Guising is long-standing tradition taken to America by immigrants from various Celtic origins and with other cultural influences became the American ‘trick or treat’.
Children in The Guisers are from Glasgow, Scotland with all images taken at the photographer's home on Halloween. The project has over 50 images.
