The Scottish Photographic Circle exhibition starts the Auld Kirk Museum's exhibition programme for 2019.

Since its inception in 1907, the aim of the Scottish Photographic Circle, a small group of dedicated photographers, has been to promote the art of contemporary and pictorial photography in Scotland.
The quality and diversity of subject matter in this year?s exhibition suggests that the present membership is continuing to succeed in the achievement of this objective.

Hope you can manage along to see exhibition which runs from 9 January - 9 February 2019.
