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