    Looks very interesting, thanks for posting. Will try and visit Skye when it's on.

    A bit of a bugger about the competition entry dates though - too late for me to enter now...!:rolleyes:

    Cheers,
    Gavin

    .. and the site only came on line on the 5th September!
    Some nice gatherings by the look of it.

    It seems that someone is putting a lot of effort into it, so I hope it is successful. If you manage to get there I would like to read an account of it.
    Regards Dave.

    For anyone planning on visiting Skye for the fest, make sure you visit this great photography gallery in Broadford:

    Can anyone tell me where I can see more of Caroline Dear's work? (Other than at the Skye festival I mean)

    Here's her website:

    http://www.carolinedear.co.uk/

    If memory serves, she also had an article in one of the 'Scottish Photographers' mags, a quick visit to their site would confirm.

    Cheers,
    Gavin

    Thanks Gavin. It's nice to see work that goes a little beyond what things look like. So much "Scottish Photography" seems to be intended only to confirm tourists in their preconceptions.

    Do you (or anyone else) know how big the prints are? Jewel like observations, or larger sit-in-front-of-and-get-lost abstractions?

    I think I saw an exhibition a couple of years ago in Edinburgh (someone please correct me if I'm hallucinating! :rolleyes: ), and I think they were small prints rather than bigger prints...

    And yes, I think you have a valid point about most photographs of Scotland. Designed to reinforce rather than challenge methinks. Hoots mon. Misty castles. Donald where's yer troosers, shortbread. That sort of thing...!

    Cheers,
    Gavin

    Gavin, thanks again. And Schlapp, sorry if I sidetracked the thread. I hope the festival is a success.
