About this book:
Scotland was instrumental in the invention and development of photography, yet this is the first comprehensive study of Scottish photography. From the pioneering work of Hill and Adamson to the experimental work of contemporary artists, this book provides a history, a setting, and a scale for the growth of photography in this country. From the themes that have emerged in Scotland; portraits and people, land and landscape, documentary, and the art-photograph, a cohesive and enthralling argument is built up. It is an important, informative and highly readable thematic study, which brings Scottish photography onto the international stage.
