Invited Lecture, 'Beyond Hornel: Scottish Photographers in Meiji Japan', City Art Centre, Edinburgh.

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


When Edward Hornel and George Henry travelled to Japan in 1893, they encountered a community of photographers that supported their own artistic pursuits in the country. Their visit was particularly timely, but Scottish photographers, artists, and merchants had long been involved in the growth and popularity of photography in Japan. This talk will examine the history of Scottish expatriates in nineteenth-century Japan and their contribution to the photography networks and communities in their adopted country.
