OUR SCOTTISH SEAS 

Samuel Howard

FREE ENTRY

05.11.23

Debut solo exhibition by professional surf & adventure photographer

Samuel Howard.

Sam takes on a subversive journey into the beautiful oceans

surrounding Scotland. Diving into the ocean with his camera, we see

details from tiny water gems to powerful waves.

We venture to the far corners of Scotland and discover the beauty hiding in the water right next to our towns and cities.

You can also view a glimpse of his ongoing project ‘In Scotland We Surf’ in the downstairs gallery, exploring the incredible hidden community that calls our ocean home.

A proportion of the profits from ‘Our Scottish Seas’ will be donated

to @waveprojectscotland

Sam Howard is a professional lifestyle and adventure photographer born and raised near Aberdeen on the North East coast of Scotland. He became fascinated by photography after purchasing a camera to record memories of a surf trip through Africa.

Many of the water photographs and textures in this exhibition were captured around the time of the pandemic. During this time, with limitations on what we could do and where we could go, Sam and many found themselves struggling with mental health challenges.

In search of an escape, he found inspiration in the "Dawn Days" movement. Sam would walk to Aberdeen beach on winter mornings, swimming out during the "blue hour." Capturing the mesmerising light on the ocean's surface, he realised how this ever-changing environment could help clear the mind. These experiences led him to connect with fellow ocean enthusiasts, surfers, and small communities often overlooked in modern society.

This inspired his long-term project, "In Scotland We Surf," which aims to support and connect this small community while encouraging others to embrace the outdoors. The project has been ongoing for two years, with over 80 surfers photographed. Sam strongly believes in the health benefits of the ocean and seeks to offer support and encouragement to this community through his work.
