  • There is no need to write everything down from the screen during the lecture.

  • The pages that you see on the screen today will remain on the internet.

You will be advised where to find these pages on the internet.

 

 

Scope

First we look at:

-  Early history of photography

-  How cameras and styles of photo have changed over the years.

                                                   (Pages 1 + 2)

Then:

-  Who took the photos?

-  Who viewed the photos?

-  What impact did the photos have?

Did the photos give a true view or an idealised view of Scotland?

-  How has photography changed today?

                                                         (Pages 3 + 4)

Then:

-  Where can collections of old photos be found now?

                                                                                                   (Page 5)
