Reviews of ‘The Elements’ – Retina Scottish International Photography Festival #Retina16

We love being part of the Retina Scottish International Photography Festival exhibiting our show, The Elements, at the Roamin’ Nose.  We have had some lovely reviews and media interest.  A few snippets…

“I love their takes on lyrical urban noir …and their eye for the beautiful illusions this beguiling city has to offer.”  The Broughton Spurtle

“the husband and wife duo don’t shy away from the well-trodden classic viewpoints, but their fascination with light and weather has led to their combined efforts showing in a new exhibition, focusing on the unusual takes on these tourist hot spots.”   STV Edinburgh

“We have seen their work and it really is something different from normal Edinburgh photos.” Edinburgh Spotlight

“It’s also worth seeking out Retina in some of its other outposts: at the Roamin’ Nose restaurant on Eyre Place, Edinburghers Paul and Lynn Henni present The Elements, a show of their photographs of their city.  Shot mainly in black and white, often at night, they show the city at its moody, mysterious best, reminding us of the power of a good photograph to reveal a familiar place in a new light.” The Scotsman

“Both artists ‘work in the moment’; that is they travel with cameras, alert to opportunities, rather than planning a particular shot in advance with all the calculated rigour of a scientific experiment. The results are wonderfully spontaneous, but the images are also technically accomplished, shrewdly composed, and sensitively processed afterwards.” The Broughton Spurtle
