This exhibition features black & white and colour photographs of unseen and forgotten Edinburgh interiors by Scottish artist Ron O’Donnell. The works are of unusual interiors such as prison cells, public toilets, and laundrettes as well as local shops such as grocers, fishmongers, and pet shops, taken during the 1970s, 1980s and three decades later. On display for the first time is a small selection of around 40 photographs from his impressive archive of these little-known and lost places. O’Donnell’s images reveal the social changes that have taken place in Edinburgh, but also illustrate how our behaviour as consumers has shifted dramatically over the years from local communities to global online markets. 'Edinburgh: A Lost World' highlights how many of these once bustling and thriving locations have now disappeared from the city’s interior landscape.
