Publication: Studies in Photography / Summer 2018

The Scottish Society for the History of Photography has been delivering a remarkable series of events, lectures, articles and scholarly texts on the world of historic and contemporary photography since 1986.

This issue of Studies in Photography contributes to the continuing debates around photography and performance in their expanded fields and presents a number of case studies in a diverse and international range of work. This includes Greek funerary practices, Scottish Victorian portraiture, Belgian surrealist work, and the performative image surgery of the French artist ORLAN.

Contents include:

  • Photography and Performance
  • Photopoetry
  • ORLAN 
  • Paul Nougé
  • Writer’s Choice - Janice Galloway

The Summer 2018 edition is now out. Of particular note is Sara Stevenson's article on Marcus Sparling and Fenton.
