Photograph: A Victorian Sensation
By (author) Alison Morrison-Low
This is the souvenir book of the exhibition Photography: A Victorian Sensation at National Museums Scotland June – November 2015. Meet the pioneers of photography and discover how the Victorian craze for the photograph transformed the way we capture images today and mirrors our own modern-day fascination for recording the world around us. The book highlights objects in National Museum Scotland’s history of photography collections and explains the importance of such Scottish practitioners such as David Octavius Hill, Robert Adamson and George Washington Wilson.
