Scottish Portrait Awards Shortlist 2021
The young angler, Lochs, Isle of Lewis. This young angler took so much joy in catching trout for dinner. Doing his wee bit for the family, when shop supplies were depleted, due to panic buying. From the moment he felt the first tug on his line, there was no going back, he too was hooked. While out angling, life felt normal, there were no mask mandates or restrictions. He didn’t need to socially distance himself from the fish. The only mask required was a midge net to shield and protect. Everything felt right in the world once more, even if it was just for a short while.
