Georgia’s art a real Vision
Work to show at Holyrood
Artwork by a Dalbeattie High pupil is to go on display in the Scottish Parliament.
Higher Vision will showcase some of the best images taken by 26 students from across the country who have completed the SQA’s Higher photography course in the past year.
Among those being featured is Georgia McLellan, whose picture is titled: The countryside in miniature.
She said: “To me, the course was all about developing my confidence behind the camera and exploring the world around me through a lens.
“I chose ‘The countryside in miniature’ because I wanted to try to show just how beautiful and delicate nature can be, using macro. I was inspired by photographers like Alberto Ghizzi Panizza.
“I did some basic research and looked at other photos for inspiration but I mainly just wandered around looking for interesting things and letting nature inspire me.”
Held in partnership with SQA and the Scottish Society for the History of Photography, the exhibition captures a selection of the talent that has been displayed by more than 2,300 Higher photography candidates over the past academic year.
Taken from students’ projects produced as part of their assessments, which counted towards their final grades, a panel consisting of photography and industry experts chose the images that will be featured.
The exhibition will run from Tuesday, November 20, to Friday, February 8. Entry is free.
