The Silvery Tay
The photographs shown here cover the Firth of Tay from just below Perth to its emergence into
the North Sea at Tayport, with some exploration of the hinterlands of Fife and the Carse of Gowrie
They were taken over a period of twenty years or so, which is no more
than a heartbeat in the life of this river. Yet I noticed when collating
these photographs that many would now be impossible to repeat. Boats
have sunk, trees fell in storms and grass has given way to concrete
and brick. Perhaps most significant is the absence of hard winters
now. The images here of an icebound bridge taken in the winter of
'82 seem unlikely ever to be repeated.
here are also not only a catalogue of prints available - though
are very welcome. They are also a celebration of this beautiful
river which flows past my studio window. I hope you enjoy them.
