A world-renowned photographer’s pictures of the AWPR will be displayed at a series of exhibitions across the north-east during the next few months.
The 12 photographs, taken by Colin Prior at various stages during the project’s final months of construction, will be on display at various libraries over nine weeks from late May until late July.
The “New Perspectives” exhibition is the final part of the year-long Go North East campaign, launched last summer to highlight the benefits the project will bring.
The campaign also featured a schools film competition and the Go North East Road Festival, held on the road last September and attended by around 14,000 people, including 1,500 cyclists.
Mr Prior said: “Photographing a construction project of this scale is challenging, so I was pleased to be the first photographer to be given access to closed sections of the route while work was ongoing.
“The vistas and scenery surrounding the project have made for some special photos which I think capture some of the ‘New Perspectives’ afforded to the north-east because of the project’s development.
“These images demonstrate the significance and scale of the AWPR and also the beauty of the surrounding landscapes in the area and I hope the people from across the north-east get the chance to enjoy them.”
The exhibition will be free to view at Aberdeen Central Library from May 21 to June 7, Ellon from June 10-28, and Stonehaven from July 1-19.
