Inside this issue
The landscape photography of Ian Cameron & Jim Robertson
Landscape photographer based in the North East of Scotland with a leaning towards intimate landscapes. Retired designer.
Ian Cameron and I have joined forces for our second shared exhibition, the previous one being held about two years ago. There is no ‘theme’ as such to the exhibition as it is a selection of the work we have produced individually over the last two years. In combination, we will be exhibiting approximately 40 examples of our work.
Content wise my selections lean more towards the ‘inner landscape’ as personally, I find intimate landscape photography a real challenge and therefore for me more satisfying. This also allows me to concentrate on locations close to home in Moray although I have also chosen a few examples made in the North West Highlands of Scotland.
I’ve included a four print mini project of four trees which I regularly re-visit and photograph as well. One ‘old friend’ located at Badachro near Gairloch I’ve been visiting regularly for the last four years and I plan to go back again in the beginning of December. Apart from the ‘old friends’ mini project most of my framed and matted prints are in a square format and all are shot digitally and composed with cropping in mind.
Ian tells me that a great many of his photographs will centre around Moray but that undoubtedly there will be other familiar and not so familiar locations displayed in all shapes, sizes and finishes. Ian hopes to be around at the gallery on a number of occasions particularly at weekends if he is not running a workshop or master-class and I’ll be in the gallery during some of the exhibition. Both of us will be delighted to meet you, answer any questions we can and of course, offer advice on any photographs. Ian also intends to have cards and his book on sale.
