The Photography of Victorian Scotland

The photographic exhibition organised by James Craig Annan in Glasgow in 1901 was important for the history of Scottish photography as it looked back at some of Scotland's unrivalled practitioners of photographic art and especially Hill and Adamson. Annan exhibited original prints by Hill and Adamson at the Photography Exhibition in Glasgow in 1901, and he had already exhibited and continued to exhibit his photogravures of their images. He went further and was responsible for the work of Hill and Adamson, and especially their magnificent portrait studies, becoming known ‘to a world that had forgotten them’. The American photographer Albert Stieglitz said that Annan would be remembered for this if nothing else and it was Stieglitz who ensured that the work of Hill and Adamson reached a wider and critically important audience.
