Veteran pho­tog­ra­pher to dis­play his sec­ond ex­hi­bi­tion at Stir­ling’s Smith

The Oban Times - - LEISURE -

A NEW ex­hi­bi­tion about to open puts the fo­cus firmly on Killin and the Breadal­bane area.

Pho­tog­ra­pher David Pater­son is cur­rently pre­par­ing for his ex­hi­bi­tion, which be­gins on Novem­ber 26 at the Stir­ling Smith Art Gallery and Mu­seum.

His show, Land­scape and Na

ture in Breadal­bane, con­sists of 65 to 70 pho­to­graphs, with the main em­pha­sis on land­scape but flora and fauna are also rep­re­sented. The in­ten­tion is to give a com­pre­hen­sive ac­count of all that Breadal­bane of­fers.

Breadal­bane is the name of a medieval ter­ri­tory be­long­ing to the Camp­bell and Mac­nab clans, cov­er­ing mod­ern Perthshire and north­ern Stir­ling­shire, with Killin as one of its main power-bases.

David de­lib­er­ately puts for­ward the propo­si­tion that the re­gion stands very high in the ranks of Scot­tish land­scapes, and com­petes very well with the more emo­tive names such as Skye, Tor­ri­don and Wester Ross.

David re­tired to Killin in 2003 af­ter a long ca­reer as a free­lance pho­tog­ra­pher. He has pub­lished more than a dozen books of land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy on sub­jects rang­ing from the High­lands to the Hi­malayas, and has held sev­eral ex­hi­bi­tions.

David en­joyed a 25-year col­lab­o­ra­tion with the in­ter­na­tion­ally-renowned gar­den artist, Ian Hamil­ton Fin­lay, which gave rise to more books, ex­hi­bi­tions and other pub­li­ca­tions.

His new ex­hi­bi­tion will be opened by Bruce Craw­ford MSP on Satur­day Novem­ber 26 and will run un­til Fe­bru­ary 6, 2017.
