A series of pinhole photographs taken with long exposures whilst walking. The images were not composed visually but with the camera located at chest height allowing an element of chance to the composition along with the physical movement involved in walking. The walk was roughly one hour in duration and done alone. This walk took place at Eglinton Park, Irvine and these images incorporate both the rhythm of walking and the atmosphere created by the immediate surroundings.
Brian studied graphic design and photography at Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design graduating in 1980. He worked as a Senior Graphic Designer in the public sector for over 30 years and now works as a freelance artist, designer and photographer.
His most recent solo exhibition Light Years was held in both the Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine (2016) and Patriothall Gallery, Edinburgh (2017). Light is the main resource for painting these photographic images. The recurring themes informing much of Brian’s wider work as a painter and photographer – water, weather and texture are explored in more and more abstract ways. This has developed further into projects dealing with mental health and the study of movement and travel.
