Peripheral Vision (exhibition)

Peripheral Vision (2007) was the name of a collaboration and exhibition between the Edinburgh artists Martin Smith, Reuben Paris and Colin Usher. The show, conceived and executed within a 48-hour time period, was shot in the Leith area of Edinburgh. It featured a style of photography that mixed crime scene incidents with associated visual narratives and occasionally texts that were both found and devised.
