Between the Lines - Portraits of Authors


  • Edinburgh International Book Festival Charlotte Square Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom (map)

Our owner/director, Chris Close will be exhibiting the latest collection of author’s portraits at this years Edinburgh International Book Festival in Charlotte Square Gardens.

Over the years Chris has continued to develop his unique approach to shooting portraits.

The work displayed will be taken the day before it is displayed. Each day during the run of the Book Festival Chris will photograph a number of the authors apperaring, by the next day the work will be on display. Each day new work is added so the exhibition is continually growing and changing. The photography takes place in Charlotte Square the venue of the Book festival although Chris’ studio ( an outdoor backdrop) is out of sight of the public. The exhibition is displayed around the walkways in the gardens and is free to see.

Whether you are a reader or not there are always some incredible and unique portraits. This is the eleventh year Chris will have produced the work.
