New photography exhibition at Creative Exchange

A new photography exhibition opening on 15 January 2018 features contemporary portraits shot in the style of historical paintings.

The photographer, Leesa Tulloch, is a graduate of Edinburgh College. Tulloch was born in Calcutta but has also lived in Ayrshire, London and Cape Town.

The photographs on display have already won her an award as she received the British Institute of Professional Photography College Award last year.

Leesa said: “The inspiration for this work comes from childhood memories of paintings by English and Flemish Masters. My aim was to reunite history with memories of the sitter to create unique and beautiful portraits. Studying at Edinburgh College allowed me to experiment and develop my own photography style, which runs throughout the Remains of the Past exhibition.

“Having my work recognised by the BIPP was a great accolade and I’m excited to have an opportunity to share it with the public.”

Remains of the Past is open from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, from 15 January to 8 February at Creative Exchange (29 Constitution Street, EH6 7BS).
