In the blink of an eye: the history of photography THE HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY: From Lacock to Leith
Most of us know that photography was invented in Lacock. How many are aware its development continued north of the border in Edinburgh ?
We are very excited to welcome author Ali Bacon to PUF! Ali's illustrated talk invites the audience to bring along their oldest family photos to compare with some of the earliest ever made and to learn about the processes involved.
You’ll also hear about Ali's most recent novel, 'In the Blink of an Eye' (Linen Press 2018) which was inspired by photographs from the 1840s and the stories behind them (you can buy copies from the author on the night). Pre-booking recommended as this will be a very popular event!
We will let you know when booking open. This event was postponed in April 2020 so fingers crossed for September 2021!
