Event Description

Join us to celebrate Studies in Photography the journal of the Scottish Society for the History of Photography. We are excited to host the relaunch of the journal as a twice yearly publication with this Anniversary Edition that takes as its inspiration the 1996 edition which featured the work of several photographers who exhibited in the seminal exhibition Light From the Dark Room at the National Galleries of Scotland in 1995.

International Photography Curator at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Anne Lyden, will welcome us followed by distinguished photographic artist Alexander Hamilton, Chair of SSHoP (Scottish Society for the History of Photography), who will introduce us to the work of the society and its journal, which is now for the first time available to the general public.

Edinburgh based photographic artist and co-editor of SSHoP’s biannual publication, Robin Gillanders, will announce forthcoming events and lectures.

Members of SSHoP committee will be present along with a number of renowned photographers featured in the journal to meet attendees, sign books and discuss their work, including Patricia Macdonald, Catriona Grant, David Williams, Calum Colvin, Owen Logan, Ron O’Donnell, Ian Stewart and Thomas Joshua Cooper.

Enjoy an evening of live jazz, drinks and publications by key photographers from the Society.
