Stonehaven photographer, Andy Hall, has launched his new book while donating the proceedings from the launch to CLAN cancer support.

Andy was at CLAN’s Aberdeen House last week to launch his second book, Scotland’s Still Light.

It was thanks to a chance conversation that led Andy to donate to CLAN.

He said: “It was last year on the West Coast.

‘‘I was talking to friends about the great work that CLAN does and it came about that I was able to help in some way. I am also donating a photograph for the Christmas Cracker this year.”

Scotland’s Still Light explores the relationship between photographic imagery and the words of some of Scotland’s most highly-respected writers. It is not an attempt to illustrate the texts but to give a sense of place through the combination of words and images.

Susan Crighton, CLAN’s fundraising manager, said: “Andy’s well known throughout the North-east for his photography and this was reflected in the large turnout of people who attended the talk on his new book at CLAN House.

‘‘Andy donated the proceeds from the evening to us and we’re delighted to be the recipient of such generosity.

“The book itself includes a range of stunning photographs of some of Scotland’s most inspiring landscapes and city views and I’m sure it will prove extremely popular with people looking to add something new to their bookcase.

“Andy has also handed over a signed, framed photograph that we will use as a prize at our Christmas Cracker event later on this year. Our Christmas Cracker event is one of our most important fundraisers of the year and his contribution is greatly appreciated by all associated with the charity.”
