Artist Talk: Scotland's Far North

15:00 on 7 March 2020
Lillie Art Gallery

Scotland’s Far North by Chick Chalmers, Glyn Satterley & Tom Kidd continues until 19th March at Lillie Art Gallery in Milngavie. These three bodies of work from the late 1970’s provide a unique insight into Scotlandʼs remote landscape, islands and people.

All three bodies of work appeared in a series by Paul Harris Publishing, an enterprising photography publisher based in Edinburgh at the time. These were Chick Chalmers ‘Life in the Orkney Islands’ (1979), Tom Kidd ‘Life in Shetland’ (1980), and Glyn Satterley ‘Life in Caithness and Sutherland’ (1983). It is from that basis that Street Level has revisited these projects to re-evaluate those times and places from the vantage point of the present.

Scotland’s Far North was originally exhibited at Street Level Photoworks in 2017. This exhibition is one of a series which revisits selected projects marking Street Level’s 30th Anniversary.

Meet the photographers Tom Kidd and Glyn Satterley on Saturday 7th March, they will be giving a talk from 3pm along with photographer Robin Gillanders who will offer some observations on the work of Chick Chalmers.

The event is free and all welcome
