Laurence Winram: The Conemen and Other Stories

Laurence Winram: The Conemen and Other Stories

This showcase of limited edition prints showcases the ambiguous and darkly comic side of art photographer Laurence Winram’s work. At the heart of the exhibition is a series of photographs featuring men in black dinner jackets and high conical hats gathered together in otherworldly landscapes. Winram says of these images: ‘I have my own ideas about what the Conemen are up to, but I choose not to share that with others as it’s the ambiguity that I try to draw out of each piece that inspires me.’

Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, until Sun 29 Aug.

This show is magical in more ways than you can imagine. Go and see it to be transported into a mysterious world. These photographs are painterly and inspiring to the imagination. The texture and subtle colour is rich and draws one into the story behind the image. See what you will in them.
