The latest exhibition in the University's Tower Foyer Gallery features stunning black and white photographs of the cities of Dundee and Damascus, taking the viewer on a journey from one great city to the other.
The pictures are the work of local photographer Mandy MacFarlane. Striking views of the Tay Bridge, the McManus and other local landmarks are accompanied by images of the Great Umayyad Mosque and scenes of people going about their day-to-day business at the Souk Al-Hamadiye and in other parts of the ancient city of Damascus.
Mandy MacFarlane is a self-taught photographer who has worked at the University as a tutor for the Academic Achievement Unit. She uses an SLR camera with 35mm black and white film and hand-prints her own photographs.
The exhibition runs until 18 June in the Tower Building. Admission is free.
