As Edinburgh’s month-long artistic celebrations roll on, here are three photographic picks to see
Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2015
A chance to see last year’s winners of the esteemed portraiture prize, this exhibition provides a chance to reacquaint yourself with these exceptional portraits ahead of the 2016 announcement later this year. The selection of subjects that pass in front of the various lenses are always wonderfully diverse, and the stories behind the images make for stimulating reading. Well worth checking out.
Until October 2, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, nationalgalleries.org
Summer Exhibition 2016 (Last Chance to See!)
The Royal Academy of Arts closes its annual exhibition at the end of this weekend, so this is your last chance to see the results of the world’s largest open submission show. It includes a photographic installation by artist duo Jane and Louise Wilson, as well as a multitude of other artistic endeavours.
Until August 21, Royal Academy of Arts, royalacademy.org.uk
RSA Open Exhibition
The RSA Open Exhibition draws works from artists in all disciplines from Scotland and beyond, celebrating the best of contemporary work in all artistic fields. There’s plenty of photography but also painting, drawing, sculpture and more.
Until August 30, Royal Scottish Academy Lower Galleries, royalscottishacademy.org
