The Institut francais d’Ecosse is delighted to host the inaugural exhibition of the newly created group of artists The Photographers Collective.

This rich exhibition presents the work of 6 artists from Edinburgh and beyond: Albie Clark, Jon Lee, Susie Lowe, Paul Marr, Susan Richards and Luke Watson. Coming from very different backgrounds and exploring diverse approaches to photography– from landscapes’ portraits to still life images and spontaneous photographs- they all chose to present a series of photographs that define their own artistic statements for their first exhibition as a collective.

A programme of free events is scheduled to accompany Collection One to help visitors learn more about the exhibition:
Meet the Artists - Saturday 21 May, 11.00am – 12.30pm
In Conversation with The Photographers Collective – Tuesday 24 May, 6.00pm

About the artists:
Inspired by visits to les Rencontres d’Arles, a world-renowned annual French photography festival The Photographers Collective was established to nurture and promote the talent of photographers working in Edinburgh and further afield. The Collective’s primary motivation is to exhibit photographic work in and around Scotland, utilising existing spaces as well as showing in interesting venues.

Drawing from a range of creative fields, the Collective’s aims are: To INSPIRE To INNOVATE To EXHIBIT To COLLABORATE

Collaboration and idea-sharing are central to the Collective, and we aim to offer support for photographers through portfolio reviews, professional promotional guidance, artist talks and exhibition opportunities.
