There will a talk in the Great Hall by David Williams on the photographer Robert Frank as featured in this journal.

This latest edition of Studies in Photography 2019 Edition II concludes the exploration into the world of collecting; with organisations such as the National Trust for Scotland offering some fascinating insights into their collections and the process of making them accessible to the public.
