About the exhibition

Photography: A Victorian Sensation
Until 22nd November 2015

National Museum of Scotland


Meet the pioneers of photography and discover how the Victorian craze for the photograph shaped the way we capture and share images today.

Follow the cross-channel competition between photographic trailblazers Louis Daguerre and William Henry Fox Talbot, enter the world of the 1851 Great Exhibition and see some of the world’s first 3D photographs. Then get swept up in the collecting craze of the carte-de-visite and discover the fascinating stories of the people behind the pictures, including Hill and Adamson’s beautiful images which capture the people of Victorian Edinburgh.

Featuring around 1,500 photographs, from iconic images of the day to quirky Victorian humour, the exhibition explores the remarkable stories of the people both in front of and behind the camera.
