Garth Ivan Shortlisted for the 2023 Scottish Portrait Awards

They tell me that legendary photographer Albert Watson will have reviewed my work, and that alone is enough to be quite overwhelming. They also say that submissions to the Photography category were up 80% over last year and competition was steep… so to be shortlisted to the exhibition with not one, but two portraits is both very unexpected and very humbling.

Starting next September, the 2023 Scottish Portrait Awards exhibition will premiere in Edinburgh, before traveling to Dumfries and Galloway, and finally to Glasgow over the course of six months, and it will be viewed by many along the way. I am delighted to be a part of it.
