Curatorial description (Accessed: 30 November 2018)
David Octavius Hill was a respected painter and secretary of the Royal Scottish Academy. He is best known for his famous photography partnership with Robert Adamson from 1843-1846, which is considered to have transformed photography into an art form. Their work greatly influenced later practice in the medium. A sociable and cheerful man, Hill was a much loved figure within Edinburgh society.
