ATLAS Arts is thrilled to be collaborating with Document Scotland to stage one of their salon evenings in Portree. Please join us for this exciting opportunity to meet and discuss the work of three distinguished photographers.

On 27 April, Sophie Gerrard, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert and Colin McPherson, three of the four photographers who established the collective back in 2012, will show and talk about work from their recent exhibition The Ties That Bind  at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.

Document Scotland is a photographic collective comprising four Scots-born photographers, each an exponent of documentary photography in their own right. They have won numerous awards, exhibited internationally and seen their work published in the pages of some of the most important magazines and newspapers.

The event will last around 90 minutes and there will be opportunities to ask questions and discuss the work with the photographers. Delicious drinks and snacks will be provided.


Document Scotland:

Formed in 2012 Document Scotland is a collective of four Scottish documentary photographers brought together by a common vision to witness and photograph the important and diverse stories within Scotland at one of the most important times in our nation’s history.

We work on our own self-initiated projects, as well as publishing newspapers, books and digital magazines and have exhibited widely across the UK, including major shows at Impressions Gallery, Bradford, Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.
