When the Light Shifts: Exhibition launch

11th March, 2017 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm


When the Light Shifts is a national touring exhibition that brings together over fifteen of Scotland’s female photographers. The show represents a vibrant range of current practice, from intimate portraiture to experimental images of organic matter, to vital enquiries about what a camera is and how we use it in today’s world.

Photography is a powerful way to share our stories, to describe our realities – or our dreams – and to document what is important to us. The work of Wildfires, an evolving network of Scotland’s women photographers initiated by writer and curator Dr Katherine Parhar, When the Light Shifts is a vital collaborative project that celebrates community in creativity for Scotland, with photographers and audiences alike.

When the Light Shifts: Exhibition Launch, Saturday 11th March, 1.30pm to 3.30pm

Celebrate the opening of the exhibition and meet the exhibiting artists who are part of a new evolving network of Scotland’s women photographers. You can find out more about their network at the launch event. Learn more about the exhibition here.
