1893 Members' Exhibition

Awards

The May 1893 edition of Transactions of the Edinburgh Photographic Society published the rules for the exhibition.  The rules were fairly similar to those for the 1892 Members' Exhibition. 

The Medals to be awarded for the exhibition were listed in the January 1894 edition of Transactions.  They were:

Exhibits

A report of the exhibition appeared in Amateur Photographer on 18 November 1892*.  I have categorised this as Members' Exhibition, but it is clear that the exhibition was also open to others.  The journal reported:

"Of the pictures which are exhibited, there are nearly 200 by members of the society.

-  Mr FP Cembrano jun. has sent four landscape studies, printed in platinum, on rough paper, which have taken first-class awards at exhibitions in London, New York, Amsterdam and Brussels.

-  Mr W Bedford, London, has sent duplicates of three pictures which were exhibited in the Pall Mall Exhibition.

-  Mr George Davison sends twelve landscape pictures of the Emersonian school about the effects of which there has been much controversy in photographic circles.

-  Mr Ralph Robinson, London sends three large pictures - landscapes with figures - which will be useful to the members as studies in composition.

-  Mr Liddell Sawyer, Newcastle sends two large composition subjects, which illustrate the charming effects that may be produced by attention to lighting.

-  Mr F Sutcliffe, Whitby, sends a series of very beautiful landscape enlargements.

-  Mr Adam Diston, Leven, Fifeshire, a few exhibits of composition genre subjects.

Of the work of the members, the most striking is the large group of the Photographic Convention by Mr Ayton, the Chairman."
