A SERIES of major and fringe exhibitions are taking place across Moray as part of a regional photography festival.

Moray Art Centre, in Findhorn, will host Kacper Kowalski’s Sexy Peat – a showcase of aerial photography of the northern Scottish landscape – throughout September as part of the Flow Photofest.

Local photographers Anne Thomson and John Ferguson [both right] are taking part in fringe events for this year's Flow Photofest, which is underway across Moray and the Highlands and Islands. The fringe events in Elgin, which will see local cafes showcasing works by local photographers, have been supported by Elgin BID and chief executive Gill Neill (third right) joined them to help launch the event. Works will be on show in three cafes - Cafe Kambouche, Batchen Street and Mana – and their owners (from left) Sarah Doonan, Lynn Purvis and Mikaela Robertson also joined together to celebrate.

Moray College UHI, in Elgin, is exhibiting work by Highland photographer Iain Sarjeant in Out of the Ordinary, which is showing from September 6-24.

The work of local photographers will also go on show at three Elgin cafes from tomorrow as part of a series of fringe events.

In Batchen Street Coffee there is work by Chris Bird from Forres, while in Manna, which is also on Batchen Street, is work by the Elgin-based photographer John Ferguson.

And in Cafe Kambouche, work by Anne Thomson from Forres and Matt Sillars from Inverness will be on show.

The Elgin exhibitions, which can be viewed until the end of September, have been supported by Elgin BID and the Birdhouse Collective.

It is the first time Moray has been involved in the month-long FLOW festival, which celebrates photography in all its forms.

Over 20 exhibitions are taking place at galleries across Moray and the Highlands and Islands and there are also a number of artist-led workshops, talks, a films.

Matt Sillars, Flow director and chair, said: "FLOW Photofest 2019 is a tremendous opportunity for people in the local area to see a range of quality, contemporary photography by international and Scottish photographers, including four Scottish premiers by photographers from Canada, Poland and Russia.”

FLOW, which is run by volunteers, was launched in 2017 to present new and recent work by Scottish and international photographers.
