After last year’s images of ‘Bringing the Light Back’, the photographers – spread across Orkney – will this year switch attention from the light itself to its impact on the land, sea, buildings, flora and fauna – wherever and whenever they come across an image. The exhibition will as usual be held in the Orkney Library, Junction Road, Kirkwall.
