Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Exhibition: Theoretical Sharpness / Lauder, 5-8 August 2019

Thirlestane Castle will showcase a new photography exhibition featuring works by Frederick Maitland, the 14th Earl of Lauderdale (18658-1931), curated by Sam Cornwell. The exhibition will be displayed in a new event space, the 'Vaulted Cellars' at Thirlestane Castle, Lauder, Scotland.

The exhibition will showcase some of the early printing techniques used by this prolific photographer at the turn of the last century as well as pre-Photoshop examples of edited images. The Earl was a member of the Royal Photographic Society who exhibited widely and wrote extensively about photography. The Castle holds a large collection of his work. 

As well as never before seen images there will also be a selection of his more vernacular work to give audiences a taster of the Earl’s broad range of photographic skills.

The exhibition will be open from 10am daily and is included in the normal admission to the castle.
