Leonora Olmi at Habitat

Friday, 1 August 2008
9.30AM- 6PM

Habitat Edinburgh and Stills are proud to present a new series of photographs by Edinburgh-based artist Leanora Olmi. This work was produced in the darkrooms at Stills in Spring 2008 and is exhibited in Habitat as part of the Stills/Habitat partnership.

A selection from The Clearance Project, Part Two will show at Habitat from 1st August - 14th September to co inside with the launch of Habitats' new autumn/winter collection 2008.

Leanora Olmi presents a series of landscape photographs from Scotland and Australia. The work juxtaposes two histories to highlight events that contributed to emigration in the Highlands of Scotland and to emphasise the repetitive nature of history. The work uses the subjective nature of photography to comment on political and cultural histories and to point towards landscape's relationship with the past.
