The Personal Art of David Octavius Hill
Winner of the Infinity Award given by the International Center of Photography, New York
David Octavius Hill (1802–70) was a pioneer photographer, painter, and lithographer. In 1843, he entered into partnership with the young photographer Robert Adamson, and in the next four years they produced an extraordinary body of original and inventive work. This book analyzes the photographic partnership, explains its remarkable success, and places it in the context of Hill’s life and times.
Sara Stevenson is chief curator of the Scottish National Photography collection at the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh.
