I’ve just written an article for a zine which Edinburgh Lo-fi Photography is going to distribute over the next few days as part of the AltPhoto Festival organised by Kenny Bean. How gobsmaked was I to find out that Jessie Mann probably one of the very first women to use photographic equipment lived in a house which is one street away from where I work nearly every day? She lived in the house above in Wellington Place in 1841. The article will go online as well. I put a link in when it goes live
