Scottish Photography: The First Thirty Years

By (author) Sara Stevenson; By (author) A. D. Morrison-Low

In the middle of the nineteenth century a sympathetic relationship between art, science and technology laid the groundwork for photography to flourish, including camera obscura and the panorama. This is a lavishly produced book on the eventful first thirty years of photography in Scotland – around 1840 – 70. The photographers whose work is discussed include David Octavius Hill, Robert Adamson, James Valentine, Thomas Annan and George Washington Wilson plus practitioners not previously mentioned in any publication. Julia Margaret Cameron’s encounter with Scotland is also described as is the work of Scottish photographers abroad.
