DescriptionThe railway bridge crossing the river Tay, viewed from Fife through thick sea mist ('haar'). Dundee is normally prominent on the opposite bank of the river but is obscured. Clearly visible alongside the bridge are the stumps of piers from the original bridge destroyed during a storm in December 1879 with the loss of 75 lives.
Alistair Kerr, Fife, Scotland Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, I have lived in Scotland for many years, and am now based in the picturesque region of North East Fife, close to the town of St. Andrews. Having been involved in photography for over 25 years, I began practising on a part-time semi-professional basis in 2006. Currently I also practise as an architect on a part-time basis alongside my photographic work.
My work covers a broad range of subject matter from landscapes to abstract studies and street photography. I am a firm believer that the most unremarkable of objects can make good subjects, and often the greatest challenge lies in making something out of nothing.
