Exploring The Liminal

Patriothall Gallery, Edinburgh. September 2018

Exploring The Liminal brings together  “In The Broken Places”, which is a response to my heart attack, and some selected pieces from other series, including “In Praise Of Shadows”.  As the title suggests, the common theme is of seeking beauty in times and places of transition and seems to have been a feature of my work for many years. Each of the additional works has a personal reason for its inclusion.

In The Broken Places

The main focus of the exhibition is the In The Broken Places project and finding a way to make it work in the gallery space, was always going to be a challenge. And so, I arrived on the first day of installation armed with sketches and ideas, knowing full well that I would probably have to start from scratch and indeed I did… and at the end of that day, I had hung only three pictures, but I knew what I was going to do… the rest was just hanging.

I was being told to be quiet, I hadn't realised the awful moaning was coming from me

@ Exploring The Liminal

There are very few opportunities in Scotland for photographers to meet and speak about their work and so I decided to make the most of having access to this wonderful space and invited others to speak and host a Shutter Hub meet up. I would like to thank the other speakers, Adam Fowler, Ilisa Stack, Christi MacPherson, Kathryn Polley and Douglas May and all those who attended. I would also like to thank Anneleen Lindsay who took the photos of the Sunday event.
