A MONTH-long festival celebrating photography in all its forms opened on Friday.

Inverness Museum and Art Gallery (IMAG) is hosting part of FLOW Photofest, which is a biennial event.

It will cover this year’s theme of Borders, which acknowledges shifting political and personal boundaries and how photography is evolving as an art medium.

Photographer Paul Campbell, who is one of the organisers, said: “We will present new and recent work by Scottish and international photographers from Alaska to Russia, promote new collaborations and engage a diverse array of visitors.

“The theme addresses cultural, social, territorial, geographical, political, sexual, racial and psychological phenomena.”

The festival puts the spotlight on the Highlands and islands with venues across the region taking part.

In Ullapool, An Talla Solais is hosting Impossible Colonies by Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte. Rhue Art is staging Undersong by Linda Lashford.
