Alexander Wilson Hill FRPS (1867-1949) was one of the acknowledged masters of pictorial photography in the period 1905-1940, using the bromoil transfer process. A keen amateur photographer, he lectured widely on the process, and his work was highly respected even in his lifetime. Shortly before his death, he ruthlessly edited his huge collection of images, burning those he believed were not to his exacting standards. Thus, the prints which survive, are those with which he was completely satisfied. His work can be found in the collections of, amongst others, the National Library of Scotland, the National Galleries of Scotland and St Andrews University Special Collections.
