Video from the current exhibition at Newington Library Edinburgh. Currently with authentic library soundtrack as I still have to learn how to add a sound track to the top of a video.
The “Islands ” from the title are paintings of Iona and the Orkney Islands by my Dad, Kevin Connelly. The “Cities” are one image from each of the 12 Cities from my “12 City Project” . These were shot with ( expired) sx 70 Polaroid film or Artistic TZ Polaroid film , manipulated on location and then colour tweaked prior to printing to help the colour. I really prefer to keep that to a minimum and when shooting “fresh” sx70 I hardly had to do anything – but the Artistic TZ in particular has a really sludgy greenish cast which had to go !
Now that the exhibition is up I can resume work on pulling the book version together. I have set a deadline to complete this, but am keeping that to myself for the time being !
I am running a little giveaway of exhibition postcards for people who visit the exhibition in person, but thought it would be fun to draw one from someone who comments on one of the exhibition posts too.
