The term "amateur photographer" is usually used in a disparaging way, reducing that person's work to no more than a hobby. History shows that this is often a false categorization, as illustrated by the astonishing discovery of the life's work of Vivian Maier, a Chicago nanny. His collection has given a new perspective to the genre of street photography, although unfortunately recognition only came after his death.

In Robert Blomfield , we have a similar unsung talent: a man who couldn't stop taking pictures wherever he lived and worked, brilliantly and compulsively capturing people and places on film .

Although medical school was his first calling, he always carried his prized Nikon camera with him to capture anything that caught his eye. Trained as a doctor in Edinburgh in the late 1950s and early 1960s, he created a substantial archive of life in the Scottish capital, from his work in the hospital to the people he observed on the street, from the construction of the new Forth Road Bridge to the reshaping of the city itself as streets and homes were demolished in the name of progress. It is a rich and remarkable archive, a selection of which is published here for the first time.
