Phantasmagoria – fantastic images!

Thu October 13, 2016 @ 19:0021:00

| Free
Victorian camera

The development of photography during the nineteenth century enabled images to be captured permanently and displayed either as prints or as slides projected onto a screen using a ‘magic lantern.’ Scotland played a major part in this story through the work of scientists such as James Clerk Maxwell and David Brewster, while photographers such as Hill & Adamson and George Washington Wilson brought the images to a wider public.

Tom & Winnie Stevenson will outline the history of photography and will present a Victorian Travelogue of historic images using a Magic Lantern to display original slides of both local and international scenes.
