A stunning and immersive photographic exhibition featuring Loch Lomond opens to the public in Glasgow on November 14, 2015. Island Drift was created by public art charity NVA in partnership with Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park for the Year of Natural Scotland 2013.

Over eight months, national park rangers helped designer James Johnson, photographer Alan McAteer and NVA’s creative director Angus Farquhar to create the artwork around the famous loch.

By placing moving and static lights on land and water, and using multiple camera positions, they captured a powerful series of digital images that illuminate the Highland boundary fault line. These will be displayed at the exhibition at Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow.

More about Island Drift

Island Drift displays the images in a series of lightbox images that give multiple perspectives on the topography of the region. By lighting the landscape and water, and using the subtle changes of natural light, Alan has captured a powerful compositional structure and texture to the images.

Gordon Watson, chief executive of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park says: “It was an unusual and fascinating experience for our rangers to help the artists light up the landscape of the Park to create these stunning images.

“The exhibition provides a unique perspective on the striking geology of Loch Lomond and we are thrilled that it will be on show at the Street Level.

“I would encourage people from the National Park area and across Scotland to head to Glasgow for this unique exhibition.”
