We have two amazing exhibitions at the Bonar Hall this year, on Friday evening and all day Saturday – photographs by Nadir Khan and the “on tour” Hugh Munro Legacy Exhibition.
As well as having his photographs exhibited, Nadir is also speaking at the Steps Theatre on Thursday evening.
Nadir started his photographic journey while studying at Glasgow University in the mid 80s. Weekend trips into the mountains would be accompanied by his camera documenting adventure and misadventure as he and his pals stumbled through the apprenticeship of Scottish winter mountaineering.
Nadir now lives in Edinburgh and for the past 8 years has been working in the adventure sports industry as a much sought after professional photographer and film maker. His images have been used by Visit Britain, Sports Scotland and many outdoor brands keen to use his skills in creating dramatic and eye catching imagery. You may remember his dramatic short film,”The Black Cuillin” at DMFF in 2015.
In 2018 he released his book ‘Extreme Scotland’, a photographic journey through Scottish adventure sport and at the Dundee Mountain Film festival will be talking about the making of the book, both the highs and the lows and a behind the scenes look at some of the shots in the book.
Nadir is an ambassador for Ellis Brigham Mountain sports, F-stop camera bags, Elinchrom lighting solutions and runs photographic courses at Glenmore Lodge
The Hugh Munro Legacy Exhibition
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Sir Hugh Munro, the man who gave his name to Scotland’s highest mountains.
Previously hosted by the A K Bell Library at Perth, the exhibition is now on tour! Through this exhibition of photography, objects and archives, The Munro Society present the fascinating story of one of our greatest mountaineers through to the birth of Scotland’s mountains as a source of recreation.
From the early pioneers and first ‘completers’ to modern day milestones this exhibition charts the men and women who have found adventure, friendship and personal triumph at 3,000 feet.
The display will also explores the impact that man has had on these mountains over the years and the changes that have further shaped our landscape and the way we view it.
