Stewart Baillie photography exhibition

Nowhere to be but here – photographic exhibition by Stewart Baillie – took place from 10 to 27 April 2013 at the Tolbooth Art Centre in Kirkcudbright.

Through his photographs, the artist shared special moments and feelings captured during the past year, often with a twist revealing a ‘well-kent’ scene in a new light, some with more to them than appears at first glance. Stewart’s eye for reflections – a major theme in his photographic work – creates a multi-dimensional effect, freeing the viewer’s imagination and allowing it to travel beyond its usual limitations. Other images express beauty in its simplicity, inviting the viewer to ‘just be here’ and savour the moment. The photographs in this exhibition were all taken in the Dumfries and Galloway region, mainly around Kirkcudbright.

Born in 1960 in Kirkcudbright, Scotland, Stewart Baillie lives and works in his home town as a driving instructor. Through his profession he developed a keen sense of observation which he has extended to his passion for photography. Encouraged by public interest in a modest selection of photos displayed during the Kirkcudbright Arts and Crafts Trail in 2010, Stewart started to put together a collection of his work and has since exhibited his work annually.
