Flow Photofest, the biennial international photography festival, is coming to the Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre, opening on Monday 6th September.

The exhibition features David Williams’ Pictures from No Man’s Land – a project commissioned in 1984 by St Margaret’s School for Girls in Edinburgh, in conjunction with the Scottish Arts Council with the images exploring the theme of growing up and its myriad ramifications.

No appointment is necessary and the exhibition will be available to viewthroughout the month of September during normal opening hours, Monday to Friday, 10am until 4.30pm.

Visitors are advised that Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre is still operating at a reduced capacity, so the exhibition space is restricted to a maximum of six visitors at any one time.

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

The exhibitions will also be taking in sites in Inverness, Elgin, Moray, Thurso, Portree, Stromness, Stornoway, and on the Isle of Lewis.

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