2pm, 11th April

By donation

We’re thrilled to welcome Ray Cox for a talk on his breathtaking outdoor photography!

An accomplished photographer of gardens and plantlife with over 20 years of experience, Ray is a member of the Cox family of horticultural experts and authors who have run their world-famous business and garden at Glendoick in Perthshire for three generations.

This talk comes as part of exclusive programming to celebrate International Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition 17 being shown in Verdant Works Museum from 5th April – 28th August 2024, and offers a chance to learn more about Cox’s photographic ethos, and hear of wondrous ventures that his expansive photography career has taken him on.

International Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition 17 features a host of beautiful images of flora, fauna, wildlife and landscapes, with an abstract depiction of the elegance of birds chosen as the overall winner. A selection of the awarded photographs will be shown in the atmospheric High Mill of Verdant Works, alongside a special photographic celebration of Dundee’s nature and unique heritage.

The “Dundee’s Nature and Heritage” special photography competition was created by International Garden Photographer of the Year in partnership with Dundee Heritage Trust. With entries open from Autumn 2023-February 2024, photographers of all abilities and backgrounds in the city of Discovery were encouraged to portray their favourite nature and heritage within the city; whether one of Dundee’s historic parks; a detail of greenery amongst heritage; or a meaningful scene. The competition received dozens of entries from across the city, with the judging panel currently selecting the photographs to be displayed in this prestigious exhibition hosted in one of the city’s most scenic historic spaces.
