Join us at Stills for the launch of Alex Boyd's new publication, 'The Point of the Deliverance' (Kozu Books) which depicts the Atlantic coastline of Ireland and Scotland using a striking Victorian photographic technique.

On the evening Alex will deliver a presentation on the work, followed by a Q&A between Alex and Anne Daffertshofer, co-host and co-producer of Looking North, a series of conversations that bring together the worlds of visual art, literature, natural science and ecological conservation. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

The event is free and open to all.

About 'The Point of the Deliverance'
With many images never seen or exhibited before, ‘The Point of The Deliverance’ is a pilgrimage to the very edges of the Celtic world. Following in the footsteps of the earliest photographers, Boyd has carried his camera and chemicals to visually and historically important locations, making glass plates in his dark-tent in sun, wind, rain and snow.

Alongside 70 images, the book includes an essay by Highland Book Prize winning author David Gange, and contributions from one of Ireland’s most acclaimed poets, Moya Cannon. A foreword is provided by legendary Scottish artist Will Maclean RSA ‘The Artist Laureate of the Highlands’. Described by artist Sally Mann as ‘A perfect marriage of technique and subject – gasp-worthy’ the 136-page publication has been produced by Kozu Books, and is available now.
