Stephen Lawson
Edinburgh Old Town from Waverley
cibachrome photograph, 43 x 94 cm
Reg. No: L94
This work is a time-lapse photograph showing the old town as seen from Waverley over a November day. The Scottish artist, Stephen Lawson, has lived for many years in West Virginia, USA where he has developed this technique of photographing landscapes over a period of time. Stephen's handwritten description underneath the work, explains how he put together this 180 degree view from 60 photographic strips. The segments were photographed in sequence from dawn to dark over a ten and a half hour period in early November.
