Join us for a tour with Ben Harman, Director of Stills and curator of The days never seem the same. This exhibition brings together the work of Gunnie Moberg (1941-2007) and Margaret Tait (1918-99). Moberg worked primarily with photography and Tait became an influential filmmaker, poet and writer. Both artists shared a strong connection to Orkney: the place, its people and its landscape.

The days never seem the sameincludes a large selection of Moberg’s photographs, from portraits to aerial views of the landscape of Orkney, dating from the late 1970s to the years immediately preceding her death. It also features a selection of films by Margaret Tait accompanied by rarely seen archive material, including photographs associated with Tait’s work and travels, on loan from the Orkney Library & Archive.
