Our featured artist for this edition of Network News is David Seagrave.

David has been taking photographs for over 50 years and develops all his own images. He recalls “I took my first photo (of the Russian Pavilion at the Brussels World fair ) in 1958 on a box camera then took my first 35 mm photo in 1960 and nowadays I have at least 30 useable cameras from a centenarian plate camera to modern SLRs which I use  for appropriate subject matter in colour print or monochrome” David enjoys taking photographs “of Scotland’s incomparably diverse scenery”. This stunning black and white photograph is a filtered view of the lower slopes of Creag Liaragain mountain opposite Crianlarich.

David has travelled across Europe and taken photographs to document his many trips. This colour image is of “a Maltese temple exposed in a reloaded throwaway camera and printed onto colour paper that cost me about a penny for the original (but still used about 8p worth of chemicals to process it )”

David is also a prolific and talented writer who continues to develop his “burgeoning anthology of short stories with Asperger characters”. He has also written videoscripts, radio dialogues and plays which include Asperger and OCD characters.

Further examples of David’s photographs can be viewed on our Gallery.
