Anne M. Lyden, International Photography Curator at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, will discuss her recent book about the photography of David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, one of history’s most famous photographic partnerships. During the four years that the Edinburgh duo worked together before Adamson’s early death in 1848, the two produced several thousand prints encompassing landscapes, architectural views and tableau vivant from Scottish literature, as well as portraiture. Their photographs of the Newhaven fisherfolk are arguably among the first images of social documentary photography.
