Flow Photofest, the biennial international photography festival, is coming to Highlands and Islands venues this month.

With High Life Highland (HLH) as a partner, the 2021 exhibitions are themed around ‘legacy’ and will be on view at HLH venues including Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, Thurso Art Gallery and Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre.

The exhibitions opened today, Saturday September 4.

FLOW Photofest first ran in September 2017 and aims to present new and recent work by Scottish and international photographers.

Photographers on show at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, running until October 16, are Thomas Joshua Cooper with Caledonian Desire Lines, Flannery O’Kafka with Thin Blood/Thick Water and Frances Scott with Undertow: Unfolding.

At Thurso Art Gallery, until September 25, are Sean Patrick Campbell with Swollen Utopia and Jo Bentdal with Common Sensibility.

At Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre, until September 30, is David Williams with Pictures from No Man’s Land.

David Williams’ photographic practice is wide-ranging and increasingly informed by the notion of nonduality. He studied English and Sociology before becoming a professional musician and songwriter – taking up photography in 1980.

Williams became Head of Photography at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) in 1990 and was appointed Reader in 2003. He retired from ECA in 2017.

Widely exhibited and published internationally, he is the recipient of a range of major awards and prizes, including the BBC Television 150 Years of Photography Award, and in 2018 he was nominated for the Kyoto Prize in Arts and Philosophy, the Japanese equivalent of the Nobel Prize.
