Dock Street Studios will open its event space to THE SCOTTISH LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR Exhibition. From the 2nd August until 30th September 2019. 

This exhibition promises to showcase our beautiful land beyond the “biscuit tin art” images of Scotland we are accustomed to. Breath-taking scenery from beloved but also lesser known spots around Scotland. 

Even those well-travelled might question whether these settings could possibly exist within the country’s perimeter. Winner Allan Donald is Dumbarton based but it was his shots of snow-covered peaks in the Scottish Highlands that secured him his title. Such is the talent of the photographers involved. The contest aims to raise the profiles of these talented individuals whilst raising awareness of wider themes such as conservation. Aside the obvious tactic of presenting the beauty of undisturbed landscape, the competition will be leading by example using little to zero plastic and recycling its mounting boards. The competition is in its fifth year and under the direction of landscape photographer, instructor and master darkroom printer Stuart Low.

Additionally, the exhibit will host continuous interactive events throughout its two-month duration. Printing workshops with expert recommendation to ensure the best results include guidance on proper use of the inkjet printer as well as calibration and profiling advice for the more experienced.

The opening night will take place on the 2nd of August at Dock Street Studios from 7pm -10pm. All our welcome to visit this inspiring exhibition for its debut in the city of Dundee.

From the 2nd August until the 30th of September
