Catching up on past events, for all you poor suckers who missed out on the wonder-night that was LeithLate2012, come hop on board the pineapple express on a tour of Leith Walk ( no bumbling Seth Rogen thankfully )
LeithLate is an arts and culture event that takes place in the best place in Edinburgh at the best time of day. Its in the name. Bars, cafes, tailors, barbers, shops, studios, galleries and community centers all hold their doors open into the evening and host individual exhibitions that showcase the work of local artists across multiple art formats. It is a veritable treasure map of an evening with sculpture, photography, design, cinema but most importantly, music. There are sets of local musicians playing the length of the walk in so many venues to soundtrack the proceedings.
I was delighted to be able to return to photograph Leithlate again this year as well as hold my own exhibition, f e e t u p, with its mystifying (but fully formed) Hawaiian theme. Busy night for me then. You can see a full gallery of the night here. Below is the f e e t u p pineapple tour as well as the full video tour, in which I merged every single photo from the night (even the wonky ones) into a wickedly fun animation.
