Hill and Adamson were the great early Scottish Photographers. On a recent visit to Edinburgh, I tried to visit and re-photograph some of their original views. Much had changed, (a new hotel had obscured one view and Newport was very different), but many of their original scenes were still capturable. I used this book, and a map of Edinburgh, as my guides to their work.

The Getty Museum holds more than 400 works by Hill and Adamson, 47 of which are featured in this volume. A colour foldout of Hill's above-referenced painting "The Signing of the Deed of Demission (The Disruption Picture)" appears in the back of the book

Publisher's Description. The partnership between painter David Octavius Hill and engineer Robert Adamson began when Hill's desire to accurately depict the elders of the Free Church of Scotland in a commission turned him to the camera. The relationship that endured between these two for the next four years produced some of the earliest masterpieces of the medium.

Shortly after the dawn of photography, the unlikely partnership between the respected painter David Octavius Hill and the young engineer Robert Adamson produced some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium. During their brief but prolific association (1843-1848), Hill and Adamsom experimented with some of the earliest calotype processes, creating hundreds of portraits, staged dramatic photographs, and architectural and landscape images. The Getty Museum holds more than four hundred of their works, forty-seven of which are featured in this latest addition to the popular In Focus series. This collection of remarkable images also includes commentary on the plates, a chronology of the artists partnership, and an edited transcript of a colloquium on the artists.
