PCC member Colin McLean has an exhibition in Edinburgh City Art Centre from November 2019 till March 2020. It is a photographic exhibition with a difference, in that it includes original archive prints by photographer Edwin Smith that illustrated a book called “The Making of Classical Edinburgh” (1966) which initiated an interest in the New Town and led to its wholesale conservation from 1970. Colin has re-interpreted Smith’s photographs, aiming to show change in the intervening half-century and how photography can influence our perception of our surroundings. The exhibition is the culmination of a 2 1/2 year project and Colin will describe the journey over that period.

Classical Edinburgh – Edwin Smith & Colin McLean – two photographers, fifty years apart, is at Edinburgh City Art centre from November 9th 2019 till March 8th 2020  https://www.edinburghmuseums.org.uk/whats-on/classical-edinburgh
