Examining the central role Scotland has played in the history of fine art photography since the mid-19th century.
The pioneering work of David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson helped to lay the foundations of the art of photography in the 1840s, inspiring subsequent generations to explore both the documentary potential of the medium and its aesthetic possibilities.
This exhibition showcases the City Art Centre’s photographic collections, charting the development of fine art photography in Scotland from the 19th century to present day.
It features work by a range of historic and contemporary artists, including Hill and Adamson, Thomas Begbie, Joseph McKenzie, David Williams, Maud Sulter, Wendy McMurdo, Calum Colvin, Christine Borland and Dalziel + Scullion.

Featuring work by leading photographers, this exhibition explores our evolving relationship with the natural world and how it shapes individuals and communities.
For the first time in human history, more people are living in urban environments than in the countryside, yet the impulse to seek out nature remains as strong as ever.
Drawn from the collection of Claire and James Hyman, which comprises more than 3,000 photographs ranging from conceptual compositions to documentary-style works, Modern Nature will include around 60 photographs taken since the end of the Second World War, through the beginnings of de-industrialisation to the present day.
It will explore the merging of urban and rural landscapes, the rapid expansion of cities and the increasingly intrusive management of the countryside.
Artists include Shirley Baker, Bill Brandt, Anna Fox, Chris Killip, Martin Parr and Tony Ray-Jones.

Now in its 54th year, Wildlife Photographer of the Year showcases extraordinary animal behaviour and the breathtaking diversity of life on Earth.
Through their ability to inspire curiosity and wonder, the 100 images showcase wildlife photography as an art form. They also challenge us to consider both our place in the natural world and our responsibility to protect it.
This year’s competition attracted over 45,000 entries from professionals and amateurs across 95 countries. A magnificent lioness, a glowing firefly larva and a fish looking for love are the focus of some of the phenomenal images on show.
The winner of the 2018 prize is Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten for The Golden Couple, which frames a pair of golden snub-nosed monkeys in the temperate forest of China’s Qinling Mountains, the only habitat for these endangered primates (see event image). The winning portrait captures the beauty and fragility of life on earth, and a glimpse of some of the extraordinary, yet relatable beings we share our planet with.

Discover the stunning photographs of China in the 1860s and 1870s taken by legendary photographer John Thomson.
Thomson spent four years photographing the regions of China and produced iconic photographs of people and places. Such is the range, depth and aesthetic quality of his work that he is regarded as one of the most influential photographers of his generation.
He captured a wide variety of subjects including landscapes, people, architecture, domestic and street scenes. As a foreigner, Thomson’s ability to gain access to photograph women was particularly remarkable. Whether photographing the rich and famous or people in the streets going about their everyday business, Thomson’s desire was to present a faithful account of the people he encountered. This body of work established him as a pioneer of photojournalism.
Thomson’s photographs of China are reproduced on a large, sometimes life-size, scale accompanied by objects collected by Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes on their visit to China a decade later.

Martin Parr shows how the lives of Mancunians have changed but also reveals how there is continuity in how we live our lives.
Martin Parr is endlessly curious about how we all live our lives. He has developed an international reputation for his colourful photographs which capture our times – whether it is the food we eat, the fashions we wear, what we buy or our leisure activities. His images present the familiar in a new and wry way.
Starting his career in Manchester, Parr studied at Manchester Polytechnic (now Manchester Metropolitan University) from 1970-73. The city had a profound effect on him as it was so different from his childhood home in suburban, affluent Surrey. It sparked his curiosity about people’s lives, what it is to live in a Northern, largely working class and diverse city and he embraced his new context with enthusiasm. After his tutor’s intervention which stopped him being expelled from the Polytechnic after his first year, he began making cohesive documentary projects which explored a particular subject. One of the first of these was Prestwich Mental Hospital in 1972 where he spent three months photographing the patients and their surroundings.
Parr has revisited the city many times over the last 40 years to document the lives of Mancunians. The exhibition brings together a selection of Parr’s Manchester photographs. Ranging from black and white images of June Street, Salford in 1972 and Yates Wine Lodges in 1982-3, to colour photos of people shopping in 1986 and 2008, his work shows how the lives of Mancunians have changed but also how there is continuity in how we live.
Tuesday-Sunday 10am–5pm, including bank holiday Mondays.
First Wednesday of every month open until 9pm.
Closed Good Friday, 1 January, 24–26 and 31 December.

Women in Focus is a year-long exhibition that explores the role of women in photography through works drawn from the permanent photographic collections at Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales.
Part Two considers women as subjects in photography, from intimate and playful 19th-century staged family portraits by John Dillwyn Llewelyn and Robert Thompson Crawshay, to more contemporary depictions that capture the innate beauty of womanhood.
The exhibition also seeks to examine how photography has been used to mis-represent women through direct or indirect objectification, an issue that has particular currency in today’s climate.
Women in Focus has been programmed to coincide with the centenary of the Representation of the People’s Act 1918, which enabled some women over the age of 30 the right to vote for the first time. This Act marked a key moment in the fight for universal suffrage.

This exhibition gives an overview of the rise of photography in Salisbury and examines the photographers of the 1850s and 1860s.
While amateur photography began in and around Salisbury during the 1840s, it was following the Great Exhibition in 1851 that commercial photography took off in the city.
The exhibition examines the photographers of the 1850s and 1860s and the subject matter and photographic formats they exploited.
The extensive collection of the Salisbury Museum and other local collections provide examples of a wide range of images of Salisbury and the surrounding area until the end of the First World War.

A new photography exhibition reveals the living conditions of London’s most disadvantaged children.
Bedrooms of London, by photographer Katie Wilson, will be shown at London’s Foundling Museum from 8 February until 5 May 2019.
Created in partnership with London’s childhood poverty charity The Childhood Trust, the photos focus on the spaces where children sleep and are shown alongside first-hand narratives from the families.
The Childhood Trust says 700,000 children are currently living below the poverty line in the capital.
A book of the photographs in the exhibition, alongside a report on the housing crisis and its impact on children, will be sent to key policy makers, highlighting the challenges facing families.
Katie Wilson is a London-based photographer specialising in food, portraiture, and fashion photography. Her other projects include Fifty Chefs, a major ongoing body of work exploring London’s culinary culture. She has also contributed to the #CookForSyria & #BakeForSyria fundraising initiatives, and is a regular contributor to newspapers, magazines and commercial clients and art galleries, including Marks and Spencer, Oliver Bonas and Tate Modern.

This exhibition of nearly 100 photographs redefines the achievement of one of the most prominent and influential artists of the 20th century.
The exhibition takes an in-depth look at the formative first half of Diane Arbus’ career, from 1956 to 1962, when the American master developed the direct, psychologically acute style for which she later became so widely celebrated. This solo show includes some fifty photographs which have never been shown in Europe.
Arbus discovered the majority of her subjects in New York City where she created some of the most compelling photographs in the history of post-war photography. She depicted a cross-section of urban life, including portraits of couples and children, solitary city dwellers, carnival performers, strippers, and transvestites.
The exhibition chronicles an extraordinarily prolific period in the artist’s career. Nearly half the photographs that Arbus printed during her lifetime were produced during these early years, yet much of this work remains little known. The exhibition brings to light many haunting works such as Boy stepping off the curb, NYC (1957–58); The Backwards Man in his hotel room, NYC1961; and Jack Dracula at a bar, New London, Conn. (1961).
Whereas many other photographers working at the time, such as Walker Evans, Garry Winogrand and Lee Friedlander, would often play the role of passive observer or even conceal their cameras, Arbus’ sympathetic images are fuelled by the intensity of direct personal encounters with her subjects. This exchange on both sides of the camera – between seeing and being seen – raises existential questions that ultimately transmit themselves onto the viewer.

Galerie Gmurzynska in Zurich, Switzerland, presents an homage to the photography of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.
Karl Lagerfeld whose multifaceted personality helped set the fashion industry’s standard for five decades, died in February 2019 Paris at the age of 85. He had served as the creative director at Chanel for 36 years.
Karl has continuously and fearlessly explored the avant-garde of photographic processes; combining his compositional eye with his keen interest in the lost histories of the medium. His deep knowledge of art history has always been clearly illustrated in fresh ways throughout his oeuvre, while creating his own unique processes that will continue their influence on photography and art in general.
In homage to the fashion designer and photographer, Galerie Gmurzynska is displaying a spontaneous photography retrospective at its Talstrasse 37 gallery in Zurich, opening 21 February until 15 May 2019.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a gallery publication on Karl Lagerfeld.
