Exploring the theme of landscape through photographs from the 1840s to the present day, this exhibition brings together a selection of prints that transport the viewer around the world. From views of Niagara Falls to the Egyptian Pyramids many of the world’s greatest locations have been recorded by the camera. Drawn entirely from the permanent collection of photographs at the National Galleries of Scotland, this exhibition will explore the various processes used by photographers over the centuries to document locations far and wide.
The View From Here is part of the Institute for Photography in Scotland’s Season of Photography 2016, a series of lively exhibitions and events taking place across Scotland from October to November 2016.
