A landmark archive of acclaimed street photographer Robert Blomfield (1938-2020) has been deposited at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Research Collections. Born in Leeds, Blomfield moved to Edinburgh in 1956 to study medicine. He arrived in the city as an enthusiastic amateur who was never without a camera around his neck and, over the next decade, honed his skills as a prolific street photographer.

This exhibition celebrates Blomfield’s time as a student at the University.

The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday: 10:00 -16:00
Masks must be worn, unless exempt.

Please note opening hours are subject to change at short notice due to public health restrictions.
