The Mission of Mason Tryst
He ran his own photography business for years. He is now in pursuit of more creative directions. To craft out a unique perspective of the world. In his quest he has captured a collage of esoteric images whilst on his travels. Including masonic lodges. Mason Tryst is a peculiar aperture into his collection of artworks. Masonic philosophy is the central character of his work. He also writes about the masons. Musings of which can soon be found on his Blog.
Edinburgh is the perfect platform on which to lay the foundation stone of Mason Tryst. The city is the birthplace of Freemasonry. Housing the world’s first purpose built masonic lodge. Canongate Kilwinning No.2. A lodge which the bard Robert Burns visited. Edinburgh is host to the Grand Lodge of Scotland too. The heart of Scottish Freemasonry. And some may argue, of the world. Many of Edinburgh’s lodges date back to the 1700s. And there are some much older than No.2. Dating hundreds of years further back in time. These lodges were where the first lodge minutes in the world were found. Steeped in history there is inspiration everywhere. In time it is hoped that Mason Tryst will be rich in art and knowledge. As this is a masons wages. Lest we forget.
