Retina is in its fourth year and over that period it has done more to showcase great photography in Scotland than just about anybody else.
This year is no different. Indeed next Tuesday sees the opening of the Association of Photographers 2016 Photography Awards Show at Out of the Blue.
And there’s a great show by Hellen Van Meene and Bryn Griffiths at Summerhall until the 15th July.
But last night was about the newbies and I had the great pleasure of talking to two of them. Both delightful human beings. Rod Penn
and Suzanne Forrest.
In particular we had a long chat with Suzanne whose architectural series called Ethereal Industry multi layers images of beautiful industrial and agricultural units to creat a ghostly world of weird but truly beautiful structures. She rightly won a BIPP award for this collection.
