I’m very happy to be back at the ‘Fringe’ this August with my camera for FringeReview after a couple of years absence.
Enjoyable as it is, this will be very different time for me, because my good friend, the well known fringe performer, “Lynn Ruth Miller” will never be with us again. Sadly, we lost a real character in September last year, someone who loved performing especially in Edinburgh at the ‘Fringe’.
I will no longer be able to wander the city streets with Lynn, from show to show, or between her performing, compering or making guest appearances. No more late night walks and long chats. I miss her, but many probably miss her as much or even more than I do.
How different my fringe experience will be remains to be seen. Arriving on the 2nd August, I plan to make a few of the venue launches, try and capture the atmosphere this year, and select a few shows to see. I will also be available to photograph a few shows over the 11 days that I’m here. If you see me around say hello.
I first came to the fringe in 2009 taking photos and making videos so look out for a few pictures of Lynn Ruth and others from my collection. Let’s hope for a great year for celebration and a return to a fantastic fringe in 2022.
Sunday arrived as I spent these first few days catching as many of the launch shows as I could which consequently kept me busy sorting them all out and preparing them for gallery display on ‘fringeReview’.
