Scotlands Far North
27 May 2018 until 16 June 2018
Thurso Art Gallery
Scotland’s Far North
Chick Chalmers; Tom Kidd; Glyn Satterley
Thurso Art Gallery, 05 May – 16 June
Street Level Photoworks touring exhibition ‘Scotland’s Far North’ travels to Thurso Art Gallery.
These three bodies of work from the late 1970s provide a unique insight into Scotlandʼs remote landscape, islands and people. Glyn Satterleyʼs series presents a document of life in the neglected area of Caithness and Sutherland at a time when the myth was much banded about that the oil industry brought wealth and prosperity to the whole of Scotland. Chick Chalmers ʻOrkneyʼ project and Tom Kiddʼs ʻShetlandʼ both present fascinating photographic insights of these island archipelago’s at a time of change with the effects of the oil industry on the traditional life of these cultures. Candid and sympathetic, the images show that Scotlandʼs Far North managed to take its place in the modern world without losing too many of the customs and traditions which give these places their special character and ethos.
