About the Exhibition

Suitable for everyone interested in making photographs rather than just taking them, the Edges exhibition showcases the work of seven modern photography practitioners who revel in the anticipation, unpredictability and craft that slow photographic processes bring. Paper and film are transformed by light and chemical techniques to form unique images.

Following in the footsteps of Hill and Adamson, the Edinburgh LoFi Photography Group has focused on producing quality, hand-made pictures. Edges explores the boundaries of modern and traditional, observation and participation, urban and rural, new and old.

"I love the craft of old fashioned film photography, something as simple as paper, light and chemical techniques transform the world into unique images. It is always exciting, always unpredictable, sometimes it disappoints but often it creates wonderful accidents which you don't get in digital photography." - Mary Gordon, LoFi member.

About the Edinburgh LoFi Photography Group

The Edinburgh LoFi group was started in 2009 at the Beyond Words photography bookshop to promote and explore film photography at its most amazing. The members now run the group collectively.

The group meets once a month to share their film photography experiences, run events, hold workshops and plan exhibitions. New members are welcome and meetings are free to attend.
