Stills 2018

17th and 18th of February, 2018. Stills.

Edinburgh and Elsewhere brings photography, writing, illustration and publishing together with a special emphasis on place, in all of its forms.

Catherine Marshall’s new pocket-sized book, To the Peninsula, uses found poetry and photography to revisit an area by the Thames in South-East London that has undergone massive development, playfully questioning what lies behind the façade.

Elaine Robson‘s book, Nowhere, chronicles a journey across the Karst, a limestone plateau which forms the border between the Italian city of Trieste and the Slovenian countryside. Text, lino-cut and photographic illustrations evoke the transitions of territory from wilderness to landscaped.

Elsewhere, an outstanding journal based in Berlin which is dedicated to high quality written and visual art that explores place – from cities to edge lands, heartlands to island communities, will also be on sale on our stand. Invited international artists whose works focus on place will join us.

Fruitmarket Artists’ Bookmarket 2017

25th and 26th February, 2017.

Edinburgh and Elsewhere brings photography, illustration and publishing together with a special emphasis on place in all its forms, including the imagination.

Edinburgh-based artist Catherine Marshall will be launching her book Fleetway, an imaginative story based on a failed roll of photographic film taken at the Cammo Estate in Edinburgh.

Elaine Robson will be showing her artist book inspired by Japanese urban landscape and found text, Under City. As the Scarrow press co-founder, she will also present the contemporary photography ‘zine Simulacra.

Husband and husband team Chiu & O’Brien will showcase their illustration and photography projects. ‘Drawings in a Time of Dreaming’ by Gerald O’Brien, features tiny mixed-up buildings and invented structures, humorously subversive in their resistance to daily life norms and expectations. In ‘An Unexpected Return on my Journey to the West’, Yi-Chieh Chiu embarks on a personal photographic journey in his partner’s home country. He finds an Ireland suffused with colour and abstraction, finds poignancy in the everyday; a way back home even as he is far from his real home in Taiwan.

Berlin-based publication, the Elsewhere, is an outstanding journal dedicated to high quality writing and visual art on place, from cities to edge lands, heartlands to island communities.
