Alan Thomson is a fine art photographer specialising in traditional black and white photography, using vintage large format cameras. 

Alan has been photographing the countryside around Crossgar over the last 2 years, documenting the waterways, hidden corners and forgotten industrial past. 


The title "contact" refers to both the physical nature of this type of image making,  as well as the creation of the image, by placing the paper negative directly onto photographic paper and exposing it to light; each image is the exact size of the image I see projected through the camera lens.
