Iain Gilmour

I take photographs for the pure pleasure of it, a chance to express myself artistically and to try and convey something of the connection I have with the subject, be that the natural landscape, a cityscape or a still life. As a geologist, exploration of landscape and its many overlapping layers modified over immense periods of time, together with humankind’s influence on that landscape, resonates particularly deeply with me. I work mainly in monochrome – I like the inherently surreal nature of black and white photography and the artistic process involved from the taking of the initial photograph through to the final ‘print’. In the digital world, photography has increasingly become influenced by social media so, while my photostreams contain a somewhat random walk through my photographs, my website is an attempt to bring some my more work together as a series of portfolios and photo essays.
