Picturing Dundee: Street Photography and Portraits

Photography alert: A solo exhibition of my work is on display at Verdant Works (W Henderson’s Wynd, Dundee DD1 5BT), running from now until 30th July, 2023.
Entry to the exhibition is free (the rest of the museum is ticketed); just ask at front desk/café (to left when you enter) for directions.

The exhibition features two batches of work:

  • Portraits: Workers in the West End of Dundee, 2018–2020 (Colour): Until the pandemic began, I was making portraits of individuals who work in and are recognizable within the West End of Dundee — tailor, greengrocer, shop assistant, barista, builder, tattoo artist, lollipop man.
  • Impressionistic Streets of Dundee (Monochrome), 2020–2022: With social distancing in force, I started a project which became the 15-image panel I submitted last November to the Royal Photographic Society, which awarded me an associateship (ARPS).

Verdant Works is a fantastic, refurbished jute mill dating from 1833 that’s now devoted to Dundee’s industrial textile and social heritage.

There’s a temporary exhibition on at the moment too (paid general admission ticket required) of winning images from the latest International Garden Photographer of the Year Competition.

Thanks also to the Dundee Courier for a lovely article on the exhibition.
