Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
In December 1920, in the aftermath of the first world war photographs appeared in a London magazine which apparently proved the existence of fairies. Embraced by believers, dissected by sceptics, and sprinkled with celebrity by Arthur Conan Doyle, the Cottingley Fairy Photographs fascinated everyone.
One hundred years later, Stills Gallery, Edinburgh, has collaborated with young people living in Edinburgh to reflect on image-making and image-faking. Their work is shown here, alongside artists and photographers who engage with the legacy of the Cottingley Fairies.
