Much of Stewart's photography has an emotional edge, exploring issues such as grief and bereavement. More recently he has become known for his abstract views of the Scottish landscape and poetic images of the sea. These works are studies of light, air and land, emptied of all distracting detail. Stewart's prints are screens onto which both photographer and spectator can project their own feelings and emotions.
