Beka Globe – Photographer

Beka Globe began taking photographs of Harris when she was 11 years old. She studied photography and darkroom techniques at Napier University in Edinburgh. There she was inspired by Ansel Adams’ landscapes, Paul Strand’s portraits and Hiroshi Sugimoto’s seascapes. Having traveled extensively with her camera, she returned to the Hebrides to explore her roots in the landscape she first viewed through the lens. Here she captures an emotive vastness, depth and simplicity. Her silent images are deeply moving, stirring a particular sense of place.
