Events: Photography: A Victorian Sensation

Edinburgh International Book Festival is presenting Alison Morrison-Low and Sara Stevenson, curators of the National Museums of Scotland major exhibition (and associated publication) Photography: A Victorian Sensiation at a special event on 18 August. In an age where we are all happy snappers, we forget the photographic revolution that took place in 19th century Britain. Join the National Museum of Scotland’s curator A D Morrison-Low (pictured, right) and Sara Stevenson, formerly chief curator at the National Galleries of Scotland, to 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. Chaired by Ruth Wishart. Book here

In addition, the Museum is also hosting a series of events around the exhibition including a history of photography short course, a lecture on stereoscopy by Denis Pellerin and a symposium on Scottish photography. See all the events here.
