> DESCRIPTION

Today these faces are famous around Scotland and the world, but they were once all students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the nation’s leading school of music, dance and drama. In 2011, to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary, KK Dundas was commissioned to take portraits of its students past and present.

This selection features some of the Royal Conservatoire’s most illustrious alumni, from old hands to more recent graduates. The display includes portraits of Billy Boyd, Alan Cumming, Elaine C Smith and Ruby Wax. It brings to light the wealth of contemporary performing talent in Scotland today.

KK Dundas is a theatre and portrait photographer based in Glasgow. The display is mounted in collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
