Revealed Revealed

Inspired by the surroundings of Edinburgh and the participants’ own experience of the city they inhabit, the workshop introduced participants to photography through a series of practical sessions and critical discussions at Stills.

The work created will be exhibited at North Edinburgh Arts from 8 to 26 July 2009. Aiming to celebrate and raise awareness of participants’ abilities and challenge sighted people’s perceptions, Revealed exhibition offers a range of fascinating visual experiences of the city.  

The photographs exhibited are accompanied by tactile interpretations, created by Camilla Adams, as well as sound recordings, created by Rachel O’Connor and Jules Rawlinson, which will make the exhibition accessible to all audiences.
