This year, Stills is 40 years old and we are celebrating our history and looking ahead to an exciting future for photography in Scotland.

To coincide with our anniversary and to raise much-needed funds to support our future work, we are launching a major £40k fundraising campaign. The campaign will kick off on the evening of Friday 20th October with a benefit auction at Stills, organised in association with Lyon & Turnbull.

The auction offers a rare opportunity to bid on works by a selection of artists and photographers including established and internationally-renowned practitioners and some of the best new talent in photography from Scotland.
