A mysterious figure in an isolated landscape. Black and white clouds in a blustery sky. A dream? Or reality? Freedom and escape. Identity and belonging. Who is this person? Have we met before? A projection of our subconscious?
Capturing the world through a crystal lens. Sets inspired by cinema. A cloud of smoke. The click of the camera. A flash of light. Lady and The Last Train. A moment created - captured forever. What is the next stop on the journey?
The locomotive thunders onwards.

'New Dawn Dreams'
The highly anticipated fourth solo exhibition by emerging Glasgow photographer Gavin Macqueen. A return to his Dreamorama worlds of previous shows but with a fashion twist.
Featuring fabulous new images, New Dawn Dreams includes his acclaimed work for designer Betty Spoke in the dramatic Scottish Highlands. It includes shoots for musicians and also pictures from the much vaunted series of images featuring Highland artist and singer, Claire Innes.
Sometimes with a darker fairytale undercurrent, New Dawn Dreams is a journey into the twilight world of souls lost at the crossroads of life. Moments of decision. To leave the past behind and start anew. A journey down the open road in the dead of night. To arrive refreshed. Regenerated. And reborn. At the glorious sunrise of New Dawn Dreams.
- James Morrison, Immediate Arts, Glasgow.
