Exposure! A photographic essence of the Tattoo

Everyone has heard of the Tattoo and if you are lucky enough to be going you will be looking forward to the greatest show on earth.  In anticipation, or if you did not get a ticket, then you can still get a flavour of the Tattoo from the photographic exhibition in Central Library.

The photos by Martin Scott Powell are dramatic, thought-provoking and stunningly beautiful.  They capture the spirit of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo with its fantastic performers to its world-beating backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

This year’s theme is ‘East meets West’ showcasing performers from all corners of the globe.

Thirteen million people have seen the Tattoo to date, so that is testament to its enduring appeal.  If you want to have a glimpse of that appeal and experience the ‘wow’ factor of these photos the exhibition is on until 29th August.

There are even free postcards to send home to friends and family to show them what they are missing.
