Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
This project took off in Shawbost when a ‘treasure chest of pre-WW1 glass negatives were discovered in the barn of a local lady, now sadly deceased. The negatives are the work of Dr Norman Morrison (1869-1949), who was born and raised in Shawbost. A successful author publishing works on local history, folklore, adder snakes, and politics. He is best known as a co-founder of the Scottish Police Federation having been a serving police officer for many years.
Public workshops on this 19th century wet plate photography will be held on the morning and afternoon of Monday 15 July 2013 led by photographer David Gillanders. Further details can be found here.
