David Magee, whose fine art photography is in international collections, studied at the Crawford and the Glasgow School of Art and Design.

The exhibition, Outside, presents 32 limited edition photographs utilising the elements he is most at home with, earth, water and air.

“In my photographs there is no real sense of time or specific place,” Magee said.

“The location is totally secondary to the feeling. The feeling is everything. I am to portray not just what exists, but what is not obvious; that imperceptible element that stirs emotion and a sense of contemplation.”
