This exhibition is about celebrating who we are. What do we have in common, and what makes us unique?
In the year of Scotland’s Census we are exploring who lives in Scotland today, who came before us and who will come after us.
Inspired by the questions asked in the census, Counted: Scotland’s Census 2022 considers the complex notion of identity. How is this shaped by our religion, occupation, health, ethnicity?
New acquisitions by photographers working in Scotland today including Kieran Dodds, Arpita Shah and Danny North are presented alongside nineteenth century photographs by Thomas Annan and Hill & Adamson - offering comparisons between past and present generations of Scots.
Located in the city centre on Queen Street, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery is easy to access.
