The Photography of Robert Blomfield: In Conversation
Thursday 3 March 2022 at 7:00pm on Zoom
Online “In Conversation” event with the family of the late Robert Blomfield
In 2018-2019 Museums and Galleries Edinburgh premiered ‘Robert Blomfield: Edinburgh Street Photography: An Unseen Archive’ at the City Art Centre with unprecedented success and record visitor numbers. Since then, the photographs of Robert Blomfield have been steadily gathering more critical acclaim and we are delighted to once again celebrate his photography in our exhibition ‘Incoming: New Acquisitions at the City Art Centre’.
The show presents a selection of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and sculpture acquired within the last ten years and we are privileged to now hold 2 of Robert Blomfield’s images as part of this collection. In this ‘In Conversation’ event the Blomfield family will discuss all the exciting things that have happened to the archive since 2018, including their new partnership with the University of Edinburgh and the forthcoming exhibition, as well as some reflections on their favourite photographs and personal memories of Robert Blomfield.
