Solid Air is a photo exhibition by Edinburgh photographer Marc Marnie at The Village in Leith, featuring some striking and memorable music photography of subjects ranging from stadium rockers such as REM and Bon Jovi, to alternative acts like Amanda Palmer and The Subways.

However big the star however, Marnie captures not only their onstage energy but a little of their personality too. The late Amy Winehouse is depicted swept away by her muse; whilst a promo shot of singer Camille O’Sullivan shows her looking pensive whilst sporting a pair of angel’s wings.

Many of the shots are taken at the HMV Picture House and at T in the Park. Once more however, the size of the venue doesn’t stop Marnie presenting up close and personal portraits of musicians, and he has an impressive knack of being able to press the shutter button at precisely the right moment.

Devotees of photography will appreciate Marnie’s eye for composition and ability to capture the atmosphere of a live gig; whilst music fans will relish the opportunity to see some original shots of their favourite stars.

Solid Air is on show at The Village in S Forth St until 28 April. Entry is free.
