Sophie McClellan - Stills New Foto Emerging New Talent Exhibition
Edinburgh Royal Infirmary
6 October 2023 - 9 February 2024
BA Professional Photography graduate Sophie McClellan has been selected by Stills New Foto emerging new talent exhibition.
New Foto is an exhibition that has been developed for the gallery at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary by Tonic Arts – NHS Lothian Charity in partnership with Stills: Centre for Photography, Edinburgh.
The aim of New Foto is to not only showcase new talent in photography emerging from universities and colleges but also to enhance the hospital environment. Through the power of art, Tonic Arts, create welcoming, nurturing and stimulating space for patients, staff and visitors alike. By enriching their experiences, arts help alleviate stress and reduce feelings of isolation, while simultaneously boosting confidence and supporting positive clinical outcomes.
Stills is one of the longest established public photography venues in the UK. Situated in the heart of Edinburgh, our gallery and photography production facilities are open to everyone all year round. With this new partnership between Tonic Arts and Stills, we aim to offer new and continued support for graduates in photography when they are in the transition year after graduation.
Sophie is one of two Edinburgh College graduates selected for Tonic Arts Awards where their work has been purchased by the Tonic Arts collection, further emphasising the profound impact of art in the healthcare setting.
