The Filmhouse now seems to be actively pursuing an exhibitions policy for their foyer which appropriately weighs heavily on the side of photography. This month they show frank portraits of contemporary coalyard workers by Graham Maclndoe. It is that sense of dignity and resolute characterwhich Maclndoe highlights which is in danger today of being wiped out in favour of a more cut-throat job market. Running concurrently is an exhibition of the Association of Fashion, Advertising and Editorial Photographer’s Awards. Photography crops up in several exhibitions in Edinburgh this month. At the Queen’s Halt three Edinburgh photographers make up a group called 5.6. Theirwork champions the notion of photography as art as opposed to recording. At the Botanic Garden, Andy Goldsworthy photographs nature (see panel) and at Stills, Edinburgh's photography gallery, Paul Reas shows work which stirs up the dark side of consumerism. Paul Reas will be giving a talk at Stills about his work on Wed 20 July at7.30pm. £1 (50p).
