Without Frontiers Exhbition
26th October 2013, 10:00 - 13:00
Venue: Mitchell Library, North Street, Glasgow, G3 7DN
'Without Frontiers’ is a Heartstone exhibition event which focuses on wildlife, habitats and conservation issues, a new ‘window’ on the environment bringing together spectacular photography with live presentation from scientists associated with the subjects featured and a stage show taking family audiences into some of the cultural heritage behind the images.
This event is however unusual in that it will also include the photostories that they have undertaken with environmental partners across Scotland including the RSPB, Forestry Commission, the two National Parks and others. ‘Without Frontiers’ was initiated with a grant from SNH in 2007 and has since grown into a substantial programme which was also presented at the Scottish Parliament at the beginning of the year. In this exhibition, they will be featuring the marine world including creatures ranging from dolphins to Great White Sharks.
The starting point of this project is photodocumentary coverage working with all 3 arms of the Armed Forces to produce the exhibition which forms the centrepiece of this project around which all the activities take place and this event focuses on the work of HMS Sutherland and other Royal Navy ships where a photographer was given special behind the scenes access to them working.
Access to Wildlife Locations
Without Frontiers has been created through Heartstone photoassignments stretching back over 20 years into locations worldwide. Funding from SNH towards this programme enabled Heartstone to incorporate Scottish wildlife and habitats into the exhibition which continues to be put together with the help of many rangers, conservationists, scientists and other experts who provide access into some of the most remote areas of Scotland from where we have been able to capture the stunning imagery. In the process, we have made many new friends and with whom we always share the photographs.
