Councillor Donald Wilson, Culture and Communities Convener, said:“In an age when everyone has a camera in their pocket and can take a photograph in seconds, this display of fine art photography reminds us of the beauty and skill of a perfect shot.
“Charting the development of fine art in Scotland, the City Art Centre delves into Edinburgh’s vast collection of incredible photographs for this display, which highlights remarkable advances in camera technology as much as it does changing styles, landscapes, fashions and snapshots in time. Treat yourself to a visit for free when ‘In Focus’ opens this summer.”
