A PHO­TOG­RA­PHER with Ben­bec­ula links has been in­vited to show­case his work at a pres­ti­gious ex­hi­bi­tion in Ed­in­burgh. More than 50 na­tional and in­ter­na­tional lens­men will take part in the two-week event – the Retina Scot­tish In­ter­na­tional Pho­to­graphic Fes­ti­val – which starts on June 24.

This in­cludes port Glas­gow-based, CJ Monk, whose father Fer­gus is from Creagorry.

CJ Monk said: ‘The He­brides has pro­vided in­spi­ra­tion and partly helped mould my pho­to­graphic style. Ben­bec­ula is very spe­cial to me; it’s where my father grew up so I feel a strong emo­tional con­nec­tion.

‘The Retina Scot­tish In­ter­na­tional Pho­to­graphic Fes­ti­val is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to share my work with a wider au­di­ence. I am de­lighted to be ex­hibit­ing along­side such high-pro­file in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­phers.’
