Join us at Stills for the launch of the Summer 2023 edition of Studies in Photography, with a talk by London-based Scottish photographer Niall McDiarmid, who is the featured Contemporary Photographer in this issue of Studies.
McDiarmid’s work is primarily about documenting the people and landscapes of Britain utilising a remarkable sensitivity to colour composition. His books include Crossing Paths (2013), Via Vauxhall (2015), Town To Town (2018), Southwestern (2019), Shore (2020) and Breakfast (2022).
McDiarmid’s prints are held by the Martin Parr Foundation, the Museum of London, the National Portrait Gallery and the Sir Elton John Photographic Collection. He has exhibited widely in Britain, and also Europe, China and South Korea.
Besides featuring McDiarmid, this edition of Studies in Photography is packed with fascinating articles, both contemporary and historical. It includes an examination of James Craig Annan’s portrait of Joseph Conrad, a consideration of Colin Gray’s remarkable long term series about his parents; the singer/songwriter Kathryn Joseph’s ‘tender gaze’ as celebrated by David Williams; and Alex Boyd’s Scottish Military Pastoral. This along with regular reviews and our usual ‘Writer’s Choice’, for which we are delighted to feature the eminent writer Michel Faber.
The event is free and open to all.
