Two Quarries 10 Feb 2020 – 26 Apr
Alcove - Level 2

Michael Peterson presents two series of photographs of quarries.

The first A/V series, Haukannabrekka, is his personal take on the biggest quarry in his native Shetland. The second series is Moray’s Clashach quarry and its stone cutting adjunct in Elgin. Unlike the Shetland operation which produces stone for civil engineering projects in the islands, Clashach's unique sandstone properties are greatly sought after for prestigious building and monumental projects worldwide.
