British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

The interplay between scientific studies and the photographic medium is the theme for this year's St Andrew's Photography Festival. The programme includes a symposium, exhibitions and public events all taking science and photography which draw on the rich collections of the University of St Andrews. A number are of particular interest to those interested in photographic history, including: 

  • The Moon; Nasmith & Carpenter
  • Tracing Movement: Animal Locomotion, Photography and the Emergence of Cinema
  • Animal Locomotion; Edweard Muybridge
  • Images of Knowledge: Karl Blossfeldt’s Originary Forms of Art
  • Seeing the Past: Digitally Reconstructing and Recording Historic Sites
  • Chemistry of Colour
  • Shooting Stars: 19th Century Astronomical Photography
