This important and timely exhibition showcases groundbreaking new work from some of Wales and Scotland’s contemporary photographers.

Document Scotland, formed in 2012 by Colin McPherson, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, Sophie Gerrard and Stephen McLaren, are responding to the global audience looking at Scotland at this, one of the most important times in the country’s history.

Formed in the wake of Document Scotland in 2012, the Welsh collective A Fine Beginning is made up of photographers James O Jenkins, Jack Latham, Abbie Trayler- Smith and Gawain Barnard and showcases contemporary photography being made in Wales.
“I am delighted that Street Level Photoworks will be staging this exhibition of new photography by Document Scotland. These are exciting times for the collective and for photography in Scotland and their collaboration with A Fine Beginning is a positive message that Scottish photography is relevant, informative and outward facing.” –

Malcolm Dickson, Street Level Photoworks.
