Richard Leyroyd: Elevations at The Stills Gallery, Edinburgh until 3 Aug. Garnering comments trom the sublime

, to the ridiculous, photographer Richard

Leyroyd’s exhibition at photographs has struck a vocilerous chord. Comments in the visitor’s book range from ‘lucking brilliant’ to ‘an arse-chasing exercise’ to the enigmatic ‘Richard Leroyd is the Nigel Kennedy 01 photography'.

It is somewhat bemusing that these photographs, neither shocking nor incompetent, have caused such a response. Chosen lor the lirst Dance Photography Commission, Leyroyd was asked by the Scottish Arts Council to ‘record and reflect exciting developments in dance in Scotland.’ Leyroyd explains the mixed response by his non-documentatlve style. ‘I think people expected lrozen pictures 01 dancers. I tried to make it more visually interesting.’ Alter all, asking someone to photograph developments in dance is like asking someone to dance developments in photography. Straight representation would be meaningless.

Interested in idea as much as image, some of Leyroyd's work is conceptual and some tries to capture the essence ol dance movement. Working with dancers on site was at limited interest. ‘I worked with them when they were rehearsing. It was always the same; a large floor space with greyish walls, entrance and exit signs and people jumping around in Kids From Fame track suits. I got really sick of it.’

Taking his commission into the photography studio, he worked on images which reflect aspects of dance rather than reproduce them. Like movement, his images tend to be blurred and intangible rather than

crystal clear. Like much at modern dance, he is less interested in

3 characterthan the lorm oi the human

body and its relation to space. Like the journalist who writes about art, his work is concerned with the problems of representing one thing with another; tile with dance, dance with photography, photography with words. (Jo Roe)
