Mull Through The Lens photography club is focusing on a show this May all about rewilding Scotland.
Some of Scotland’s top photographers and filmmakers have spent three years capturing the beauty of the country’s landscape and its wild inhabitants and on Friday May 24 at 7pm Peter Cairns, one of those photographers, will be at Craignure Village Hall to give a spellbinding presentation of just some of the images and film footage captured as part of the Scotland: A Rewilding Journey project.
Mr Cairns, who is also Director of Scotland: The Big Picture who are behind the project, will explain the principles of rewilding, why it is needed and why it is needed now.
He will also be posing an intriguing question: What should Scotland look like?
The vision of a rewilded Scotland is a place where nature works, where wildlife flourishes and where people prosper.
Natalya Jagger, Chairman of Mull Through The Lens, said the event is open to anyone interested in photography, wildlife, Mull and the rest of Scotland.
‘We’ll have the opportunity to ignite exciting conversations about rewilding Mull, Argyll and the whole of Scotland,’ she added.
Tickets, £8 including refreshments, are available on scotlandbigpicture.com/events or from Tackle and Books in Tobermory,
Spar Shop in Salen, Visit Scotland Tourist Information in Craignure and the
Spar Shop in Bunessan.
Mull Through The Lens is a community club for photography enthusiasts of all levels who meet in Salen Parish Church Hall once a month, as well as running workshops. See mullthroughthelens.org.uk for more.
