David Octavius Hill (1802–70) was a pioneer photographer, painter, and lithographer. In 1843, he entered into partnership with the young photographer Robert Adamson, and in the next four years they produced an extraordinary body of original and inventive work. This book analyzes the photographic partnership, explains its remarkable success, and places it in the context of Hill’s life and times.

Sara Stevenson is chief curator of the Scottish National Photography collection at the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh.

"Many books have been published on the photographs made in Scotland in the 1840s by David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, but from the point of view of background scholarship, none equals this volume. . . . Highly recommended."—Choice
