FRANK MCELHENNEY - ILLUSTRATED TALK - 5th August 2016
27th July 2016
Frank McElhenney is an artist and photographer who lives in Milngavie. He has an interest in nationhood, conflict and mortality. Over the last three years he has exhibited in Scotland, England, Wales, China and Lithuania.
With an unusual approach to photography he is currently working on a project making kite aerial photographs of abandoned settlements throughout the highlands and
islands. Partly inspired by a concern for current global issues of forced migration he views this subject through a Scottish historical lens. Having already travelled to several islands as far north as Skye and to the Outer Hebrides we welcome him to Lyth Arts Centre.
During his two-week residency at Lyth he will be visiting sites in Caithness and would welcome participation by others interested in kite photography and/or local history. He will be pleased to provide transport to and from sites for a few people while others may choose to make their own way there. This is an opportunity to see little-known historical sites in our county and, by using kite photography, gain a clearer picture of their history. Please use the contact form below on how to take part. There will also be an illustrated talk where you can hear about his work please select options below to book.

The ancient folklore tradition of ‘buying the wind' was common across Caithness and the fishing routes of the North Atlantic. The tradition involved sailors purchasing 3 knots of thread, rope or fabric, to be undone as wind is required, but the mariner is instructed on no account to untie the third knot, as it may start a hurricane.
