The Calotype Club
From the oldest photography club in existence. A stunning work, and clear example of “street photography” dating from well before Henri Cartier-Bresson.
The first in a series of films exploring Edinburgh Libraries’ collection of early photography. The film takes a look at a volume of work by the Edinburgh Calotype Club from 1842 before looking at the work of key photographic pioneers, David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson.
Expore this subject further by visiting the exhibitions on our Capital Collections site.
