About us

FLOW Photofest is a biennial international photography festival, held across the Highlands and Islands, which first ran through September 2017.

  • FLOW aims to present new and recent work by Scottish and international photographers, to examine and explore the perspective of the North, and to promote new cultural collaborations to facilitate public engagement with, and participation in, photography.
  • Our vision is to make Northern Scotland an international centre for photography and to advance photography as an art form for everyone.
  • Our mission is to establish FLOW as a destination festival and develop a full-time gallery and teaching centre.

Matt Sillars, Paul Campbell, Roddy McKenzie; and Rachel Fermi, John Ferguson and Hannah Laycock

Year-round, FLOW Photofest hosts regular small exhibitions of work by Scottish-based photographers/curators at a space generously donated by Eden Court Theatre, Inverness. See our Current Exhibitions page for more details.

The next festival will take place in September 2021.
