Projects 18 is a series of four exhibitions aimed at providing a platform for new talent in photography from Scotland.
The projects consist of solo exhibitions by Thomas Whittle (11-20 May), Kevin McCollum (25 May – 3 June) and Flannery O’Kafka (22 June – 1 July) as well as a group presentation by Fresh Focus (8-17 June), an Edinburgh-based community of graduate photographers, including work by: Laura Feliu Lloberas, Dave Ferrie, Kat Gollock, Zoe Hamill, Katy Hundertmark, Liadh Kelleher, Erin Semple, Martin Alan Smith, Denitsa Toshirova, Christina Webber, Natalie Whitehill and Sam Wood.
Projects 18 is a new opportunity for selected artists and photographers, based in Scotland and at an early stage or their careers, to present work for Stills’ broad public audiences. The curatorial approach to these exhibitions is to encourage experimentation and the testing of new ideas in photographic practice and to favour new work or work in development over finished and resolved projects. In this way, we aim to offer our audiences some insight into the range of exciting and innovative work in photography that is currently being produced in Scotland.
