James Craig Annan


James Craig Annan was the second son of Thomas Annan.

James Craig Annan was a renowned pictorial and portrait photographer.  He was accepted into the ôLinked Ring, a select group of photographers who promoted art photography, in 1894.

James Craig Annan revived interest in the Hill & Adamson calotypes by making gravure prints from their work.   Some of these gravures were published by Alfred Steiglitz in 'Camera Works' in 1905, 1909 and 1912.

Old Closes and Streets of Glasgow
