Dalgety Bay man realises 50 year dream to launch photography exhibition.

The best things come to those who wait. That's something that photographer Jim Duffy understands. The 75-year-old grandfather worked as a portrait photographer half a century ago, but is only now opening his first exhibition at Rothes Hall in Glenrothes.

Originally from Falkirk, Jim worked as a freelance photographer in his twenties. He photographed many well-kent Scottish faces including boxer Jim Watt, comedian Andy Cameron and actors Juliet Cadzow and Russell Hunter, as well as the 1978 Scottish Football World Cup squad. Unfortunately, the erratic nature of the work meant that Jim - a father of four - had to abandon his photography for a more steady career.

Retirement, however, has seen him re-ignite his passion and this time around, technology has allowed him to get creative with colour and form. By fusing and overlaying photographs from a variety of sources - including his own back catalogue - Jim has created a series of unique and surreal images. These "fused" photographs, alongside some of his more traditional landscape and portrait work, form the basis of his first ever public exhibition.

"I am absolutely delighted to be launching my own exhibition at the age of 75," said Jim. "It's been a long held dream of mine and I'm really looking forward to finally seeing it happen"

He added, "The technology has really changed since I was a young photographer hanging up prints in a makeshift dark room, but the essence of an eyecatching image remains the same.

"I've kept up my interest as an enthusiastic amateur over the years and have really enjoyed developing my knowledge of digital photography and editing to create more abstract images which I hope visitors will enjoy."

Entitled "FUSION", the exhibition runs from Saturday 10 February until April.
Highlights include images of the Kelpies, the Forth Rail Bridge and other Scottish landmarks presented in unfamiliar and eyecatching ways by bold use of colour and contrast.

When: PREVIEW Sat 10 Feb between 2pm and 4pm.
OPEN TO PUBLIC from Monday 12 Feb
