2017 is the 40th Anniversary of Stills, Centre for Photography and since its establishment Stills has become a champion for the important and powerful role that the medium of photography plays in the world today. In this lecture Stills’ Director Ben Harman will discuss the history of Stills and the general condition of photography in Scotland. 

The lecture accompanies an exhibition The Photographic Art: Pictorial traditions in Britain and America on loan to the University Art Collection from Stills. The Photographic Art presents a display of historically important photographic works from the 19th and 20th centuries by famous photographers such as Ansel Adams, Julia Margaret Cameron and Edward Weston. Accompanying this is an exhibition of new and existing work by Mhairi Law and David Grinly representing exciting new talent in photography from Scotland.
