I am currently getting everything together for my “Intimate Landscapes” exhibition at the Arran Distillery in Lochranza, Scotland due to open on the 2nd March 2105.
I’ve not organised an exhibition North of the Border before, and managing the logistics virtually from 400 miles away has, and is proving challenging… Infact it’s a bit like a ballet, with prints arriving for signing and numbering (working within the vagaries of the postal system), email exchanges over card proofs, newspaper advertising and of course practicalities with my generous hosts at the Distillery. And then there’s the exhibition transportation and hanging to consider. Will it all go in my Clio? Will I need to take my drill? What order to hang the images in to ensure visual flow? Lots of decision making made. Lots more to do!
I am very excited about seeing fifteen of my loveliest pictures behind glass hanging for visual consumption and contemplation. The richly textured Arran landscape is something very special. Although battling with the elements - rain mostly - it really struck a personal chord with me when I stayed last winter and I hope that even seasoned visitors will see something new and beautiful in the familiar in my photographs on display.
Of course, whilst I’m on the island, I cannot let the opportunity slip by of extending my portfolio by revisiting some of these locations and exploring new ones if the weather permits. So please do revisit my website and check for updates from time to time.
