Norman Taylor: shed photo exhibition

A marvellous story in The Scotsman by Claire Smith focuses on wildlife photographer Norman Taylor whose spectacular photographs of his garden shed are now on show at an exhibition at RNIB Scotland. Taylor's eyesight has been gradually failing and the shed project has been a revelation. As Smith says:
Over the past two years, Taylor's digital camera, a basic model bought for just £79, has, he says, become his eyes and a way of reconnecting to the world. His target figure of 150 photographs was quickly surpassed. Since he began in 2007, Taylor has taken more than 1,300 shots – beautiful, detailed, abstract, oddly moving – of his beloved garden shed.
The rest of the article is well worth a browse and you can see his photos at his Flickr site.
