A joint exhibition featuring the work of Robert Blomfield and Jim Downie. Two very different photographers and there take on Scotland.

Born in 1938, Robert Blomfield was practicing street photography in the UK from the late 1950s through to the early 1970s. This pursuit ran alongside his medical studies at Edinburgh and subsequent years spent as a junior doctor in London. His use of the camera was unobtrusive and fly on the wall, seeking interesting or amusing scenes in a postwar world that was changing at breakneck speed.

Jim Downie was a renowned Scottish art director behind some of the country's most iconic advertising campaigns. Since retiring he discovered in a box containing old family photographs that had belonged to his mother. Many were taken in Edinburgh and Kinghorn where he used to go on family holidays.

The exhibition is free and runs from 19th April 2023 until 20th May 2023. Wed–Sat.
