Stills Centre for Photography

This summer Stills presents the first exhibition in Scotland dedicated to the work of Prague-born, UK-based photographer, Markéta Luskačová.

The exhibition includes work made over a 40 year period, and concentrates on Luskačová‘s photographs exploring the lives of children, an interest of hers which permeates almost all of her work. There were several years when this was the main subject of her photography, as seen in the series Citizen 2000 (1986-2000) and in her work from the 1960s onwards, including her documentation of Pilgrims; Juvenile Jazz Bands in the North of England; Durham Cathedral and Chorister School; London markets; Chiswick Women’s Aid; and carnivals in the Czech Republic.

Supported by Creative Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council.
