The Institute for Photography in Scotland (IPS) is excited to announce the launch of the 2016 Season of Photography – a series of lively exhibitions and events taking place at multiple venues throughout Scotland from 1 September - 30 November 2016.

The Season celebrates the wealth of photographic activity in Scotland taking place across the country in locations that include Edinburgh, Glasgow, Anstruther, Dingwall, Irvine, the Isle of Skye, Perth and St Andrews.

A unique feature is the range of contributors to the Season, from established galleries and museums to artist and photographer collectives, clubs and networks. In addition to the numerous displays, a variety of talks, seminars and hands-on workshops will take place throughout the Season at various venues. The programme offers something for everyone and tells multiple stories about the diverse ways in which photography is used as a creative tool.

Highlights of the Season include an exhibition of Marseille photographers Franck Pourcel and Yohanne Lamoulere in Trongate 103, Glasgow, British photographer Jo Spence at Stills, Edinburgh; Larry Herman’s photographs of Clydeside from 1974-1976 on display at Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow; a celebration of landscape photography from the collections of the National Galleries of Scotland at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery; a multitude of activities as part of the St. Andrews Photography Festival, and a series of events at the University of Glasgow.
