Scotland has played a central role in the history of fine art photography since the mid 19th century. The pioneering work of David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson helped to lay its foundations in the 1840s, inspiring subsequent generations to explore both the documentary potential of the medium and its aesthetic possibilities.
In Focus: Scottish Photography showcases the City Art Centre’s photographic collections, charting the development of fine art photography in Scotland from the 19th century to present day. The exhibition features work by a range of historic and contemporary artists, including Hill and Adamson, Thomas Begbie, Joseph McKenzie, David Williams, Maud Sulter, Wendy McMurdo, Calum Colvin, Christine Borland and Dalziel + Scullion.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for In Focus: Scottish Photography are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
