Robert Blomfield’s photographs take us to Edinburgh between 1957 and 1966. Born in Leeds in 1938, Bloomfield studied medicine in Scotland’s capital. He took pictures for pleasure, recording things that caught his eye. Never exhibited during his lifetime, once his prints were dry, Robert would be put them into their yellow Kodak boxes.

In 1999, Blomfield gave up photography and his career as a doctor after a stroke left him paralysed. He retired to Yorkshire and died in December 2020.
