It has been over 175 years since the discovery which changed how we view and document the world around us. William Henry Fox Talbot’s photographic process patent did not apply to Scotland, and so experiment abounded north of the border, with St Andrews luminaries, Dr John Adamson, Hugh Lyon Playfair, Alexander Govan, Admiral William Maitland Dougall, Lord Kinnaird, Thomas Rodger, Robert Adamson, David Octavius Hill, and Sir David Brewster among the first amateur and professional Scottish photographers. Celebrating this long line of Scottish photographers, the St Andrews Photography Festival is spread across 12 non-traditional venues. You can find the full programme on the Festival’s website.
