My work 'Simon' as hung in the Tweed Regional Gallery for the Olive Cotton Award 2017 (far right, lower image). Very happy to have been selected to this and had the privilege of my work being displayed alongside the work of so many great photographers, especially familiar names and friends Margaret Ellen Burns, Lynne Roberts-Goodwin and Daniel Bushaway, as well as many, many other amazing photographers.

Thanks to the Tweed Regional Gallery and everyone involved.
