James Johnstone (Scottish, active 1810 - 1850s)
James Johnstone was the younger brother of the Royal Scottish academician, William Borthwick Johnstone, who was a landscape and a history painter. He himself was a lawyer, who eventually became clerk to Lord Benholm. He was an amateur photographer, but although he seemed never wholly in control of the camera, the imperfections of his work lend charm and immediacy to his photographs.
