Stills is a centre for photography based in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

With over 40 years of history, we’ve got a lot of experience to share. Our exhibitions, production facilities and range of creative, educational opportunities allow anyone to discover, enjoy and understand photography.

Since establishing in 1977 we have become a champion for the important and powerful role that the medium of photography plays in the world today.
