Announcing Dumfries Diaries Project – to soak in beautiful Dumfries views, capture images of wonderful people encountered on the streets of Dumfries and to document vibrant art and community life in the area
The project cross-references lifestyle, street and event photography but at the same time is casual in nature. Photographs are woven into narratives, and the resulting photo stories are displayed in a constantly updating Dumfries Diaries section on our blog.
Street comic performances, outdoor theatre medieval-style pageants and music festivals, rides and fairs, art ventures, secret locations steeped in history, little clandestine discoveries as I move through Dumfries, my own neighbourhood and doonhamers‘ random activities are observed and interpreted through the lens.
I am looking forward to attending inspirational community events, meeting new exciting people (and their dogs – it seems everyone around here has one!) and growing creatively as a photographer in the process.
Meanwhile, here’s a quick gallery of excerpts from Dumfries Diaries.
