Let There Be Light – Day 10

Brittonie Fletcher looks through her collection of throwbacks to bring us day 10.

Do you remember your first pinhole photograph? Where were you on pinhole day? As a group Lofi has formed some wonderful memories of shared experiences. Brittonie Fletcher reminds us of this with today’s gallery of work.

Brittonie Fletchers work may also be seen at the 2020 RSA Annual Exhibition.

Let There Be Light – Day 8

Slow photographer and poet, Roddy Shippin’s project Up Above the Streets and Houses uses DIY beer can solargraphs to produced images exposed between 6 months and a year – Southfacing towards Bruntsfield, Edinburgh.

He has recently coined the phrase “Coronagram” – a chemigram made with expired cupbard contents. More information on an upcoming workshop with Brittonie Fletcher soon.

As we celebrate all things pinhole photography in the month leading up to Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day on the Sunday the 26th of April our exhibition opens online! New work will be added each day.

Let There Be Light is inspired by the motto carved above Edinburgh Central Library‘s main doors. Carnegie insisted this was placed above the entrance to every library he funded and the motto is as suitable for illumination through learning as it is for photography, a medium designed to record light.

While we are sad that our photographic prints can not be viewed as physical objects at this time we hope to bring them to you at a later date as Part 2 of this exhibition, which is tentatively scheduled for August 2020.

Day 1 features Graeme Lyall who “tried to take photographs with light when it was dark”, working through the winter wind, rain and sleet, to make beautiful portraits of classical Edinburgh.
