Over the winter, Young Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year, Andrew Bulloch and his father Grant have been working with us to capture the spirit and essential essence of some of our treasured parks and greenspaces.

Reflecting on the commission, Andrew and Grant said:

We are so used to going to the local park, either to keep active, walk the dog or get young children out of the house. But going to the urban parks with a camera in hand, solely to record what you see, is a totally different experience. It forces you to look around you more creatively and it opens up a whole new insight into how others use our parks.

So, while this project to photograph the urban parks has resulted in typical images of nature and wildlife, the narrative associated with the images shows how different our parks are, and how people interact with them in so many different ways.

The images could be categorised into location, date or subject matter, but we’ve chosen to try and think about them differently.

Part 3: Wildlife

There is an abundance of bird life and nature in our city parks. These are a small selection of the photographs featuring the wildlife around us in the cities.
