In an attempt to understand why artists create the work they make, we decided to launch Artist Talk in September of 2008, a video series which allows the viewer to hear, from the artist, the reasons behind making each piece on exhibit.
In 2002, we produced What Were You Thinking, a 15 year catalog which asked artists to write a statement explaining the thought process behind making a specific photograph. Artist Talk continues our commitment to understanding the creative process through the words of the photographer. We hope collectors, curators and the general public will gain a better understanding about each piece on exhibit and the artist in general.
2020VISION's short film, commissioned by the Scottish Government for the Year of Natural Scotland, showcases Scotland's stunning wildlife and beautiful natural habitats, and introduces the concept of 'ecosystem thinking' and why we need to work together to protect Scotland's nature.

The 2020VISION trailer: Big ideas to rebuild our natural home
