David Peat is an award-winning documentary film-maker from Scotland. Travelling across the globe for the past 40 years, he has also been building a huge portfolio from his passion for street photography.
But the 64-year-old had never enlarged any of the pictures beyond tiny contact sheets until two years ago, when he was diagnosed with Myeloma, an incurable cancer.
Not wanting to leave thousands of uncatalogued, unseen images lying in boxes he began going through the collection. The photographs are now the subject of an exhibition at the Watermill Gallery in Aberfeldy, Perthshire.[link][link]
