Island Darkroom is a photography gallery with its roots embedded in traditional process. Established in 2018 by award-winning photographer, Mhairi Law, Island Darkroom draws exciting and varied work to the island from across the country. As well as exhibiting and sharing the work of contemporary artists, Mhairi keeps traditional skills at the fore by holding regular workshops in analogue processes at the darkroom.

Based in the village of Achmore in the heart of the Isle of Lewis, Island Darkroom looks out over the undulating, loch-pitted peat moor to the Harris and Uig hills. The choice to build this creative space here came out of a love of the beautiful landscape that surrounds it.
