A month-long international photography festival is to be held in the Highlands for a second time.

Work by artists from Alaska, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Russia and Scotland will be displayed at more than 20 exhibitions during Flow Photofest.

It will open next week on the theme of "Borders".

Organisers said the imagery addressed cultural, social, territorial, geographical, political, sexual, racial and psychological phenomena.
