Ge­or­gia’s art a real Vi­sion

Work to show at Holy­rood

The Galloway News - - THE WEEKEND TICKET - Stu­art Gille­spie

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.
