Edinburgh from the series Horizons 2007
  • Scottish Art
This work is part of Leong’s ‘Horizons’ series - an interchangeable sequence of photographs of natural and urban environments from around the world which, when hung together create a potentially infinite landscape. It shows Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, photographed from the hill, Arthur’s Seat. For the Horizon series Leong seeks out the broadest viewpoint and photographs the scene with the horizon occupying the same position in the composition. This allows the images to be displayed as a series with one view linking on to the next. The soft-tone of the photographs, the result of flat lighting conditions, helps create a uniform image where the focus repeatedly returns to the horizon.
