British Journal of Photography


In 1875, the British Journal of Photography included more articles on Edinburgh Photographic Society than on any other society.

The BJP also featured Dr Nicol's Notes from the North.  In these, he commented on the Edinburgh professional photographers:

AW Steele and
WT Bashford

and on a visit to Edinburgh by George Washington Wilson of Aberdeen.

On 29 January, the BJP published an obituary of OG Rejlander, whose photograph 'Two Ways of Life' caused controversy amongst the Members of the Photographic Society of Scotland in 1858.
