Robert Andrew | Richard Coward Scottish Portrait Award 2020

Robert Andrew is the winner of the 2020 Richard Coward Scottish Portrait Award in Photography.

Robert spends part of every year working as a mountain path builder in some of Scotland’s wildest, toughest and most beautiful places. His photograph Mheadhoin Trefor (pronounced vehan or vein) shows a fellow path-builder Trefor on an especially tough and windy day. Robert’s photograph of his grandmother, Mary from Glasgow Gorbels earned a commendation in the 2017 SPAs. The judges appreciated the high quality of the photograph and saw a metaphor for our times in the evident struggle of Trefor against the elements.
