Three Scottish landscape photographers and artists have collaborated for a new exhibition coming to the Highlands.

Dylan Nardini, David Queenan and Grant Bulloch’s That Other Landscape is to open in Kingussie later this month.

All three have been recognised in UK awards, and Nardini and Queenan are former Scottish Landscape Photographers of the Year.

Bulloch is an architect and designer who has travelled extensively throughout Scotland. He often seeks out stormy weather for his images.

Nardini, whose father and sister are artists, uses digital and traditional film photography in his work.

He also makes images through a technique that involves instant Polaroid pictures and watercolour paper.

The photographer said using this process meant there was some uncertainty how the finished art might look.

He said: “Seeing something develop in front of my eyes as it gets put on paper means the process is far more than just capturing an image.”

Bulloch’s fondness for bad weather led to an image called Aberfeldy Snowstorm.

He had to wait for a cold front to hit while in the Birks of Aberfeldy woodland in Perthshire.

Bulloch said: “We climbed to the top of the glen hoping to be there to meet the forecasted incoming snow, but it was on our way down that the first flurries appeared.

“I was still able to shoot across the Birks towards the lichen covered trees as they swayed and moved in the snow laden winds.”

Queenan is based on the south shore of the River Forth.

He said the nearby Forth Bridge and Queensferry Crossing were among his favourite subjects.

But Carriden Pier, less than 10 minutes’ walk from his house, has been his most popular subject since lockdown.

He has been documenting the toil weather has taken on the little wooden structure.

The free two-week exhibition opens at Eleven41 Gallery on 28 June.
