A new exhibition showcasing the work of Angus photographer John-Paul Bell has opened at Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre in Forfar.

Running throughout August and September, the exhibition features beautiful images of Scotland’s landscapes taken by John-Paul in his spare time.

He said: “I’m lucky enough to live close to the Highlands and all the amazing scenery around us. I spend much of my spare time outdoors, mostly climbing hills and generally enjoying what we have around us.”

He took up photography in 2013 as a way of recording the breathtaking views from the hills and mountains that he climbs although this love of landscape now extends to different types of scenes.

John Paul added: “I work full-time for Angus Council so it means a great deal to have the chance to display my work at Whitehills and I hope everyone enjoys my work.”

Exhibitions at Whitehills are changed every eight weeks and the majority of the artworks are for sale, with each artist donating 20 per cent commission on all sales to the Whitehills Arts & Environment Fund.

All money raised is used to enhance the Whitehills environment.
