The sky’s the limit for Dundee Waterfront hoardings
November 24, 2022
A DOZEN new images of Dundee, all taken from the sky, have been unveiled at the city’s Waterfront.
The large framed pictures will brighten up the hoardings between Earl Grey Place West and Thomson Avenue on South Crichton Street into the New Year.
Mark Flynn convener of Dundee City council’s city development committee who revealed the images for the first time today said: “Our city is stunning from almost every angle, and seeing it from the air in a way that few of us gets to do adds another breath-taking perspective.
“At two metres tall and one and half metres across the scale of the images also means that as well as taking in the view, the level of detail in each one is amazing.”
Featuring the work of a pair of local photographers, Ben Hirst and Scott McBride, the exhibition has been unveiled in time for the city’s Christmas celebration, Winterfest, which will encourage visitors to the waterfront as well as other areas of the city.
Ben from Dundee who describes himself as: “A creative photographer with almost 15 years’ experience” sells his work, including images of the city, surrounding countryside of Perthshire and Angus and further afield through an on-line gallery.
Meanwhile Scott, who is also based in the city says he is: “Relatively new to photography and since picking up a camera, I have been hooked on the hobby”. He particularly enjoys taking time lapses of the local area and beyond.
Information about both, as well as the work on show, will also feature in the exhibition which will be in place until next year.
As well at the waterfront itself the aerial images also include the McManus, the Law and the Tay Road Bridge.
