Photographer Alicia Bruce will present her portfolio box which was recently acquired by St Andrews University Photographic Collection. ‘Menie: TRUMPED’ documents the Aberdeenshire community standing up for their homes and dynamic dune system as Trump International built what they claimed would be ‘The Greatest Golf Course in the World’. As well as discussing her first hand experience in Menie and her collaboration with the local residents, Alicia will discuss the decision making process in the production of this bespoke portfolio. The photographs are also held in National Galleries of Scotland and were celebrated in a Parliamentary Motion. This event is free.
