One of the joys of visiting the Islands of Scotland is that they are the chosen home and gallery of many fantastic artists.  We purchased stunning prints from a superb photographer that works on the Isle of Harris. Beka Globe produces the highest standard of print I have seen and with her partner Nickolai Globe run The Mission House.  I love that they describe it as “A Creative Space on the edge of the Atlantic.” You should take a look at her work.

She studied photography and darkroom techniques from an early age at Napier University in Edinburgh. There she was inspired by Ansel Adams‘ landscapes, Paul Strand‘s portraits and Hiroshi Sugimoto‘s seascapes.  You will have learned by now from other posts on our blog how the landscape of the Isle of Harris inspires us and Beka Globe’s images captures the feeling you get watching the atlantic rolling in.

I also see they have put up a Mission House flikr photo stream.

Watch out for more of her work on this blog as as soon as I see her new work, which is promised soon on their website a review will be posted here. We will also be visiting the Mission House soon and hopefully meeting the artist.
