We’re hugely pleased to announce that the opening of the hauntingly beautiful Island Drift fine art photography exhibition at Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow on Saturday 14th November 2015.


Island Drift is an immersive photographic installation, created in partnership with Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park for the Year of Natural Scotland 2013. During an eight-month programme of creative interventions at Loch Lomond, designer James Johnson and photographer Alan McAteer worked with NVA’s creative director Angus Farquhar and park rangers to manipulate moving and static light sources on land and water. Multiple camera positions were used to achieve a powerful series of digital images articulating the Highland boundary fault line.

The exhibition offers a series of stunning light box images to form a quadriptych that together create multiple perspectives onto the topography of the region. The temporary use of introduced light combined with the ability of McAteer to capture subtle moments of shift within natural light formations form a powerful compositional structure and texture to the images.


Information about the project can be found on the NVA and Street Level sites.  The exhibitions runs until 24th January 2016.
