My photographs have appeared in the Stockbridge (Edinburgh) Calendar every year from 2011 onwards.

Over the last five or six years, my photographs have been used on a number of websites, including Bridge House Art in Ullapool,VioVets, Coates Fitness Studio in Edinburgh, Water of Leith Conservation Trust, Scottish Canals’ Newsletter in Glasgow and several gardening blogs in both the UK and the USA.

As Taycheedah Publishing, I co-designed and co-produced two large-format photography books to accompany the Attic Salt Gallery exhibitions ‘This Moment Will Never Come Again’ and ‘Passing Through Zero’, both of which were featured at the Edinburgh Book Festival sales tent in 2011.

I curated ‘Passing Through Zero’, a solo exhibition of photographs by my father, Boris Bittker, at Attic Salt Gallery, Edinburgh2011.  This exhibition was also shown in its entirety at Fife FotoSpace in Glenrothes, Fife, in 2014.

I curated a smaller exhibition of my father’s work at Stockbridge Library in Edinburgh in February 2016.

One of my photographs, ‘Caitlin and Andrew’s Bass Rock’, was selected for inclusion in the SCAPE Trust’s exhibition ‘Coast’, which travelled to 12 venues around Scotland over the course of a year, and my photograph was also printed in The Glasgow Herald Magazine on 28th July 2007.

Another photograph, ‘Haar Family’, was awarded third prize in the North Berwick Red Cross Photography Competition in 2007.

One of my mesostic poems, part of a long-distance walking project undertaken as a homage to Ian Hamilton Finlay, was accepted as part of the permanent collection at the Centre for Artists’ Books at the University of Dundee.

In 2005-6, I produced a suite of 81 small monoprints inspired by having won a trip to visit Little Sparta, Ian Hamilton Finlay’s remarkable philosopher’s garden, and I was able to show him these monoprints shortly before he died.

From 1990 – 1991, I worked as exhibitions organiser/coordinator of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, mounting public exhibitions in a dozen venues all over the UK, including both the Liverpool Catholic and Anglican Cathedrals, the National Museum of Scotland, The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, St Nicholas Cathedral in Newcastle, and Bradford Public Library, among others.
