Friends of Innerpeffray Library September Talk: Dr Paul Phillippou: Perthshire: A Wellspring of Early Photography @ Library of Innerpeffray

Dr Paul Philippou and Roben Antoniewicz, authors of The Early Photographers of Perthshire, will give a talk offering a glimpse of the contribution made by pre-eminent photographers in Perthshire, including: David Octavius Hill, ‘one of the finest calotypists in photographic history’; Jessie Mann and Lady Kinnaird, ‘rivals for the accolade of Scotland’s first female photographer’; ‘outstanding local photographer’ Magnus Jackson; and Hugh Lyon Playfair who helped to make St Andrews the ‘Headquarters of the Calotype’. Lady Eastlake, a well-known Victorian art critic and art historian, wrote in The Quarterly Review in 1856: ‘calotypes of Messrs. Hill and Adamson remain to this day the most picturesque specimens of the new discovery’.
