About this Event

Beyond Hornel: Scottish Photographers in Meiji Japan

When Edward Hornel and George Henry travelled to Japan in 1893, they encountered a community of photographers that supported their own artistic pursuits in the country. Their visit was particularly timely, but Scottish photographers, artists, and merchants had long been involved in the growth and popularity of photography in Japan. This talk will examine the history of Scottish expatriates in nineteenth-century Japan and their contribution to the photography networks and communities in their adopted country.

Luke Gartlan is Senior Lecturer in the School of Art History at the University of St Andrews. He is the author of A Career of Japan: Baron Raimund von Stillfried and Early Yokohama Photography (Brill, 2016), and also served for six years as editor of the journal History of Photography.

Free, but booking is essential.

Due to the Covid situation this lecture will now take place online. Registration is still required. All attendees will be sent joining instructions in advance of the event.
