St Kilda: A Different Perspective with Alex Boyd

  • Portobello Library 14 Rosefield Avenue Edinburgh, Scotland, EH15 1AU United Kingdom (map)

Alex Boyd’s St Kilda: The Silent Islands is a stark and reflective collection of photographs that capture the archipelego of St Kilda in a new light. They show the reality of the crumbling military base as well as the wild beauty of the natural landscape.

He is joined by composer Jessica Danz who is working on a new composition focusing on the largely unknown and ill-fated 1852 migration of 42 islanders to Australia.

Chaired by Jim Gilchrist.

Tickets for all Portobello Book Festival events are free and can be picked up from Portobello Library in Rosefield Avenue.

This event will be held in the upstairs library.
