Victorian Britain and the Tintype Photograph: An Exhibition of Victorian Tintypes Curated by Sheila Masson


This exhibition (possibly the first dedicated British tintype exhibition ever) aims to reveal the Victorian tintype as a fascinating and invaluable visual document of the working class, and to help reposition tintypes as a significant and worthy subject within photographic history. Curated from her private collection by photo historian Sheila Masson (MLitt History of Photography, University of St Andrews) over 100 original Victorian tintypes will be on display in Edinburgh from June 27th to July 18th, 2015.
