A Blog & Photo Gallery of the Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art will post here. Meantime, I am gradually populating this Blog with photos.

The Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema exhibition is dedicated to stop-motion VFX animator Ray Harryhausen in the centenary year of his birth, #Harryhausen100. I recommend a visit to the exhibition to all, fans, non-fans, young and old. But I appreciate that a lot of people who would normally travel to visit the exhibition will not be able to do so in these times of COVID-19, so I want to share my experience of the exhibition with you.

Here are a few samples:

So come back soon, to see visions of Bubo, the Kraken, Trog, Talos, and more...

In the meantime, check out my Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema - Teaser Photo Gallery for a preview of the exhibition.

To learn more about Ray Harryhausen, see my Ray Harryhausen Tribute Blog, listen to The Ray Harryhausen Centenary Podcast with palaeoartist and pterosaur palaeontologist Dr. Mark Witton, and have a go at The Ray Harryhausen Centenary Photo Quiz.

I also write about my personal connection and appreciation for the work of Ray Harryhausen for The Conversation: Monsters, movies, and biomechanics: Celebrating Ray Harryhausen.

So, there is plenty to keep you occupied until my Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema Blog and Photo Gallery launch.

Thanks for visiting and come back soon.
