Human Of Edinburgh

Stories are powerful. They can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. They can change the way we look at people, so that those who we think are hovering in the background suddenly become the focal point.

Here is one man's story. 

"The very process of carving stone excites me every time I approach it. Watching the form emerge as I carve the excess material, and being responsible for something as rigid and formidable as a stone being reduced to a swathe of soft fabric is in equal parts, both a joyful and perplexing thing.

Regardless of the scale or complexity of the project at hand, I still go to work with the same eagerness that I did when I first started carving. Each piece of stone has it's own unique beauty, formed over millions of years, and it is a privilege to be the one to reveal it"


Leith is a diverse area of Edinburgh; residents, architecture, history, culture. An ancient port where Michelin Star restaurants sit only a street away from the biggest area of prostitution in the city. It is an area of creativity and honesty that has nothing to hide but great beauty around its streets.
