Norman McBeath – Edinburgh Arts Festival – Body Bags / Simonides

I was talking to Norman today, he is a great friend and was an invaluable contributor to life at The Photographers Workshop when we had darkrooms and studios for rent. In recent years his star has risen in Edinburgh where he lives and works as a fine art photographer. He said, as you do, “my exhibition is next to Anish Kapoor’s” it is possible that he didn’t quite use those words because he is Scottish but any sentence that includes “my exhibition and Anish Kapoor” is bound to make me sit up. So I asked how his show had been going and he said really well and that The Scotsman Newspaper had given it a 5 star review so here is that review for those of you that enjoyed Norman’s laughter and good sense, nice to know him when he was a struggling nobody!

and because I doubted the authenticity, not really, of the article Norman sent me this.  Here is a link to our previous post about this exhibition
