A Tale on The Mile by David Guillén

9 Jun 2017 - 25 Sep 2017


Museum of Edinburgh



A Tale on the Mile, the work of photographer David Guillén, is a harmony of original photography and text that explores the personalities and places on one of the most historically vibrant streets in Scotland: The Royal Mile.

Throughout the course of human history, societies have always grown from the same fundamental principles, regardless of the time or place.

Society seems to be a symbiosis, a macro-organism. Individuals cluster together to work as groups, which form a mind of their own, and in turn influence each individual. These small tribes that begin around a campfire, on the beach or on the mountain, create towns. Those towns become cities, those cities unify to create countries. It may seem strange, but often the story and character of an entire nation of people can be read in a single one of its streets.
