EXHIBITION TALK: Norman McBeath in conversation with Ben Harman

Tuesday, 30 May 2017 2pm

FREE, no booking necessary

Norman McBeath will talk us through his photographic series Light Box on display as part of the Ambit: Photographies from Scotland exhibition. 

Light in its many aspects - solar, sacred, reflected, man-made - shines through this series of photographs. They are portraits of light, playing off intricacies of light and shadow. The focus is not on identification but on imagination, providing the viewer with a starting point for their own narratives. A creative response to the UNESCO International Year of Light 2015, these photographs were developed as part of a wider collaboration with the poet Robert Crawford. The series seeks to open possibilities, alternative ways of seeing the familiar, through the lens of the camera - the original 'light box'.
