Preview – Robbie Lawrence: Northern Diary

31 Mar 2022

6.30pm - 8.30pm


Join us in the gallery to celebrate the launch of the first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery by Scottish photographer Robbie Lawrence.

Northern Diary features landscapes, portraits and still lives produced over the last seven years across Scotland’s cities, rural locations and coastal towns. The work interweaves the narratives and relationships of people and places to convey a humanist affirmation of life north of the border, against the backdrop of the broader social and political climate throughout the UK.

Included within the show are images from A Voice Above The Linn, documenting his visits to the home and garden of Dr. Jim Taggart who died in 2019. Taggart was a botanist, climate activist and the creator of Linn Botanic Gardens on the Rosneath Peninsula in the West of Scotland. The exhibition also includes the first gallery presentation of Lawrence’s new short film, Blue Bonnets, commissioned by The New Yorker.
