The Nature Library (c) Alan Dimmick 2021
As The Nature Library's time at Stills Centre for Photography draws to an end, join them for a special online closing event with writer Rebecca Tamás (Strangers, WITCH) and artist Sekai Machache as they discuss the interweaving relationships between nature, art, and literature and, with the world descended on Scotland for COP26, the need for new ways of telling stories of a climate in crisis. The event will open with a poetry reading by Cynthia Miller and conclude with an open Q&A with Rebecca and Sekai.

Described by Jessica J. Lee as “a much-needed lesson in how to love—unconditionally and immeasurably—a dying world’, Rebecca Tamás’ Strangers (Makina Books) was one of The Nature Library’s favourite new books of the past year. Filled with powerful essays both politically charged and full of magic, it's a book that inspires action with every word.
As part of Projects 20 at Stills, Sekai Machache presented work from The Divine Sky, telling a complicated history of lived and ancestral experience that sees Machache reclaiming space both physical and psychic and exploring themes of Scottish landscape, African metaphysics and cosmology and ritual practice.
