THE POWER OF PERSPECTIVE
An Exhibition of Photographic Illusions

The Rock Trust, illusion expert Professor Richard Wiseman and MagicFest present a new series of mind-bending photographs this winter.
The ‘Power of Perspective’ features young people aged 16-25 years old from around Scotland supported by Rock Trust (a charity supporting homeless young people or those at risk of being homeless). Every photograph can be seen in more than one way depending on your point of view and perspective.
Enjoy the illusions at the Scottish Storytelling Centre and then see how they were created at the Museum of Edinburgh.
