Traverse Fifty portrait number 7 Bethan Marlow by Roslyn Gaunt. 
Bethan on the process- “I had a really lovely time. It was great to meet up with Roslyn and talk about what we both wanted from this process and for me to talk a bit about why I write and how I work. We then decided to do a studio shoot and play with make-up and what real and what’s fake, playing with both sides of reality and also toying with the whole question of ‘what is beauty?’ and how do we see ourselves and how do other people see us. I had such a great day and Roslyn was fab. Roslyn actually ended up using a photo she took on our first meet and I completely trust that it was the one that suited the collection the most. Really glad I had the opportunity to do it.”

Traverse Fifty portrait number 4…. Grace Clearly by Malcolm Irving

"I would like to comment on the very positive experience I had being photographed by Malcolm Irving, a Scotsman photographer.  Malcolm went out of his way to pursue the possibility of finding a venue for the photograph which matched the play I was writing.  After some exploration the only location that we could come up with was in Perth. 
I suggested that my home might be the best alternative as it was pretty personal and unusual.  Martin agreed and produced the only photograph I have ever liked in all the years I have been photographed.  Malcolm made me feel relaxed and coped easily with my reluctance.  He is a lovely guy and I wish him every success with his future ventures.”

Traverse Fifty portrait number 5… Todays portrait is Deborah Klayman by Alan Gignoux, taken as part of the Traverse fifty project. 
Deborah on the process…. “My portrait is one of a series shot by my wonderful photographer Alan Gignoux at Photofusion in Brixton, London. After reading my play The Boundary, Alan suggested we use the concept of boundaries and borders in the photos, which was an idea I really loved and which felt captured my Traverse journey. Alan asked me to draw boxes, lines and text around myself with light, and we experimented with this until he had several fantastic photos for me to choose from. It was hard to select just one, but this felt right as social justice is at the heart of my writing and we liked the composition – that the word was more prominent than the writer.”

About the traverse 50… The project, an experiment in collaboration between two mediums organised by Writer Pictures, paired 50 writers with fifty photographers to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh.  The rest of the images will be posted here over the coming weeks
