Iconic photos

How disappointed I am that I can't visit the Dennis Coutts exhibition.  Dennis is a marvellous photographer. His iconic photos of Ad Jarmson and Whalsay Willie with his little dog were all well known to the people of Lerwick in the '50s and '60s. 

I have many of Dennis’ photos including a series of my three boys which he took each year we came home. His patience with three young boys so that he got just the photo he wanted including waving the toys was amazing – no point and shoot artist. 

Everybody should go to his exhibition. All those of my age who have lived through it to remind them of the old days and all the younger people to learn how things were from his excellent photographs. 

Good to see Dennis is still in good health.
