Retina Scottish Photography Festival is led by a group of professionals from diverse backgrounds, including business, practicing photographers, higher education, production and the creative industries. The Festival is supported by students, interns and volunteers & is funded by private and public sponsors annually.
Retina Scottish Photography Festival celebrates the very best of photography. It is an inclusive festival which aims to encourage more people to take an active interest in the art form and be inspired by a varied range of different types of photography from around the world. Each year Retina presents a programme of high quality exhibitions, which are always free to attend. Edinburgh is the festival capital of the world and will be hosting our 4th Retina Festival in June and July 2017, at venues across the city.
Retina is now in its 4th year and is going from strength to strength, with record engagement and attendance in 2016. Since our inception in 2014, Retina has presented work by some of the industry’s most celebrated professionals, including Rankin, Dougie Wallace and Tim Flach. We are committed to presenting a broad range of genres and approaches to photography. Our exhibitions have incorporated everything from Victorian tintypes to high-end fashion editorials; from images made by fleeing refugees on disposable cameras to polished advertising photography; from vivid, arresting street photography to more contemplative studies of nature.
