Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Talk: Photography by Violet Banks / online, 9 February 2023

Violet Banks (1896-1985) was born near Kinghorn, Fife and trained at Edinburgh College of Art, going on to become a schoolteacher at St Oran's, Edinburgh. In the late 1920s / early 1930s, Banks took photographs of her tours of the Hebrides.

Brownrigg will speak about Bank's photograph albums, held at Historic Environment Scotland and, further on the trail of Banks, speak about the postcards Banks made, as well as her wider photographs of Edinburgh and Scotland. Banks is featured in the current exhibition Brownrigg (Exhibitions Director at The Glasgow School of Art) has curated at City Art Centre, entitled 'Glean: Early 20th century women filmmakers and photographers in Scotland'.
