A hundred years after the beginning of WWI, the Fleming Collection is exhibiting works by two Scottish photographers. Peter Cattrell’s landscape pieces of Somme were taken over the span of many years since 1996, and have a dual focus on the devastation of war and the serenity of nature’s renewal. On loan from the Scottish National Portrait Gallery is a series by George P Lewis about the role of women in transport and heavy industries during wartime in Scotland.
