Phantasmagoria - fantastic images!
Thu 13 October 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
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 present a Victorian Travelogue of historic images using a Magic Lantern to display original slides of both local and international scenes. Click here to find out more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantasmagoria
