Robin Gillanders

I am a former Reader in Photography at Edinburgh Napier University, have exhibited widely and published 5 books. This includes a book on portraiture, The Photographic Portrait: Techniques, Strategies and Thoughts on Making Portraits with Meaning (David & Charles 2004).

This is a portrait of Robert Alan Jamieson, the Shetlandic writer and poet, who lectures at Edinburgh University. It is a studio portrait that includes an eagle’s feather, symbolizing his close interest in nature while also making an oblique reference to a quill..
