Gillian Hunt is a Macro Photographic Artist living and working in Perthshire.
As a child amongst nature I found a land full of magic lit with incredible peace and joy. I found a place of belonging where there is no judgement, no pressure and no time limits and without realising a place where the rest of the world falls gently into place. This ‘communing’ with nature has continued into my adult life and I spent time every single day out amongst the flora and fauna that surrounds where I live . . . either just being amongst it, or studying it, or, when the time is right – photographing it.
I have now found that through my photographic art I can actually re-create the feeling of congruence and magic I first experienced as a child and now I want to lead people down to the bottom of their garden and introduce them to that magic teach them how to look at the light and the shade and perhaps allow them time to find their own congruence for a time whilst they are involved in my images.

Faerie Ballet – the work . . .
Faerie Ballet – A Year in a Day in the Secret Life of the Faeries
Ever wondered what the Faeries get up to at the bottom of the garden? Well maybe this panel will shed a little ‘light’ and magic onto that very subject.
These images, photographed over three years at various locations and at various times throughout the day, depict Faeries in the ‘Ballet’ of their lives.
