Conversation Around Luck is a walk through the most influential moments and images in the life of Highland based television and film producer, Norrie Maclaren. Through photographic images, multi-media displays and props, the exhibition explores his career to date, from seeking opportunities in the creative world, to his work as an assistant to director Stanley Kubrick on Barry Lyndon and The Shining, to his fashion photography, magazine publishing, and producing cutting edge television programs for Channel 4.
Norrie was born in 1948 and grew up in the Highlands. He now lives on the West Coast of Scotland, near to Fort William, in the former summer house of florist and cook, Constance Spry. Describing himself as a ‘gifted ‘generalist’, not one to sit still for long (when not taking care of his stunning garden) Norrie is developing a number of film and television projects through his production company on the Ardnamurchan peninsula.
