Fallen - Don McCullin Exhibition

by Helen Smith -

Shetland Museum and Archives and Shetland Arts are showing work by internataionally acclaimed photojournalist Don McCullin in Da Gadderie and the Bonhoga Gallery in a joint exhibition entitled Fallen. It's the first time these powerful images are being shown as part of ARTIST ROOMS, an inspirational collection of modern and contemporary art acquired for the nation by Tate and The National Galleries of Scotland.

His work will be shown alongside work by young Shetlanders who have been taking part in the Youth Ambassadors programme. They've been hard at work over the past three months preparing photo essays, music and film pieces, so it's definately worth checking out. I'll be catching up with some of the Youth Ambassadors and the organisers in next month's newsletter, so watch this space - but in the meantime you can follow their progress on their Facebook page

The exhibition is on until 22nd February, so there's plenty of time to visit and to make it easy for visitors to get to both locations a shuttle bus will operate between the Shetland Museum and Bonhoga in Weisdale.
