Light in the Darkness: Hill & Adamson’s Pioneering Photography
To complement our 'In Focus: Scottish Photography' exhibition, Anne Lyden, International Photography Curator at the National Galleries of Scotland will explore the pioneering partnership of David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, two Scottish photographers from the 1840s. Drawing inspiration from the writings, philosophies and art of the Scottish Enlightenment, these two men created a distinct approach to the new medium of photography and in doing so established Edinburgh as an important locale within the history of photography around the world. Free event, but booking essential. To book, please contact the City Art Centre reception on 0131 529 3993.
