Internationally renowned Scottish photographer Alexander Lindsay is set to stage the largest exhibition of his career in his homeland, showcasing his vast and ultra high resolution landscape photographs from his travels to some of the world’s greatest unspoilt regions in North and South America, Southern Africa and mainland Scotland, the Outer Hebrides and St Kilda. These epic images, printed by Lindsay in his studio in Fife, will be up to 8 metres wide, and will be for sale. They will transform the unique venue of Bowhouse’s Main Hall into an extraordinary Art Gallery.
In parallel, Alexander and his wife - art specialist and advisor Sophie Camu Lindsay - have organised a Symposium to gather experts and curators in their field to consider photography from its origins through to the contemporary scene, with a spectacular series of talks, presentations and discussions that will be free and open to the public. Speakers from the Royal Observatory Edinburgh will show exhibits and exclusive new images from Telescopes of space billions of years ago, the National Galleries and Library of Scotland will show examples from the new Mackinnon Collection, innovative new Drone film and photography specialists travel in taking time from working for Getty Images, and storytellers from Harris Gin in the Western Isles, among others, will be highlighting the hugely important contribution to the medium made by Scotland and St Andrews.
