John was commissioned by the National Theatre of Scotland to shoot a special nation-wide photography project to reaffirm its position as a 'theatre without walls'.

National Theatre Scotland is one of the few national theatre companies in the world not to have its own bricks and mortar venue. This is not something they feel is a hindrance though, as their 'theatre without walls' model enables them to deliver their performances wherever there is an audience to enjoy it. The Box Office Photography Project was conceived to provide artwork which conveys this message.

A neon, 'BOX OFFICE' sign was designed by the company to travel around the country reflecting the many Scottish tours, by road, the National Theatre of Scotland undertakes every year. The brief was for John to capture six of these differing locations across Scotland, bringing his own skills and vision to the project.
