‘…No Better Than Its Woods’ at Patriothall Gallery

“This great society is going to smash;
They cannot fool us with how fast they go,
How much they cost each other and the gods.
A culture is no better than its woods.”

– from ‘Woods’, W.H. Auden

Development : An Exhibition by Robert Davies

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.
