Join curator, Daryl Green, on a free guided tour of this exhibition of 1950s and 1960s Edinburgh street photography.

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. Robert Blomfield: Student of Light celebrates Blomfield’s time as a student at the University.

Notice to attendees:

Please meet in the antechamber of the exhibition gallery situated on the Ground Floor of Main Library (through the main entrance doors on George Square and to the left). The tour will begin promptly at 1pm.
