Photography Down The Line with Louise Mclachlan (recorded: 8 July 2020)
Ben Harman, Director of Stills: Centre for Photography in Edinburgh, speaks to Louise Mclachlan.
Based in Edinburgh, artist Louise Mclachlan works predominantly with digital photography. Finding it the most ideal tool to create, Mclachlan draws inspiration from many mediums including painting, performance, sculpture and cinema. In recent years Mclachlan has explored her own relationship within creating whilst living with long term health conditions. In September 2019, she launched Scope - a photography workshop aimed at teaching individuals living with long term health conditions the power in their perspective.
