June 26 - July 26, 2015


In honour and spirit of the Edinburgh Pinhole (2012) and Alt- Photo Festival (2013) put on by Kenny Bean we would like to present ACTINIC, a festival dedicated to alternative, historic and new analogue photo related arts.  We are operating under the banner of the Institute of Photography Scotland's 'Season of Photography "a lively series of exhibitions and events taking place in Scotland from April to September," as well as the UNESCO World Heritage 'Year of Light'.

We want to provide interdisciplinary crossover between arts, media, sciences and expand the public perception of what photography is. We hope to forge new connections and inspire alternative pathways for thinking and creating and provide access and the means for as many people as possible in Scotland and beyond. 

We've sold out of the first batch of catalogues for the festival. We've decided to add an online pre-order as well as sale of a downloadable pdf.


We're making the festival art pieces available online for sale as well and will be updating this shortly. 


in the meatime we'd like to highlight S Gayle Stevens "Disappearance" piece- the wet plate collodion bees are for sale and are 40 GBP a piece including shipping.
