This Friday 29 January at Tent Gallery, Robert Davies exhibits photographs from his photo essay on Edinburgh’s coastal communities.
‘I set out to record the changing coastline of a city, and found a landscape in limbo, of stalled developments that had little connection to history and community – a landscape of unfinished visions of its future’.
From Robert Davies photo essay of Edinburgh’s coastal communities, Granton, Newhaven and Leith in Volume 2 of The Evergreen: A New Season in the North.
The photo essay is included in the second volume of The Evergreen, amongst fiction, poetry, art and essays, recently relaunched for the first time in 120 years.
The exhibition is open 5-7pm Friday 29 January 2016, at Tent Gallery, Evolution House.
Second-year MFA student Stephanie Ghetta filled Tent Gallery this past week with photos, text and ideas surrounding her research for “A Collaborative Future.”
A timeline illustrated the history and transformation of the Val di Fassa in the Italian Dolomites. In the past, agriculture was one of the main industries of the region. But with the introduction of mass-tourism, the behaviour and the landscape changed.
Ghetta’s proposal suggests collaboration within the community, and the development of an agricultural tourism that aims to promote sustainability.
