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 Lightis 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.
Events gone by in past years herald those forthcoming in the new. Edinburgh LoFi’s new members exhibition – Almanac – uses traditional, alternative and lomographic photographic processes to record the weather, tides, star paths, seasonal events of the past calendar and personal journeys.
