    The exhibition opens tomorrow in the City Art Centre in Market Street. . . . . exhibition details here.

    And there's an interesting video about Robert here for those who want to know more.

    There was a steady stream of locals and tourists wandering through when I was in this morning,
    and lots of favourable comments in the visitor book!

    So well worth a visit for anyone who happens to be in Edinburgh, and especially for those around
    in the 60's.

    Finally got around to visiting. A few stunning photos but quite a mixed bunch. Seemed really popular compared to numbers in the portrait gallery...

    I've been a few times and noticed it's very popular with folk who wouldn't normally go to a photo exhibition, mostly locals who were around in the 60's and go for the nostalgia. I heard one of the attendants say it was the most popular exhibition they've had in years. Worth remembering Robert was a student so probably wasn't much older than 20 or 21 at the time!

    Up next at the portrait gallery: Robert Mapplethorpe , Diane Arbus and Francesca Woodman . . . . although I've a feeling I've probably seen them all before. . . . well maybe not the Arbus!

    The SNPG show is an Artist Rooms one so there's a good chance you'll have seen at least some of it before. It'll focus mostly on their self portraiture so could be a bit dark for a summer show.
