Edinburgh Photographic Society

1907

 Open Exhibition

Exhibition Entries

The 1905 Open Exhibition  was held from 23 February until 9 March in the EPS Premises at 38 Castle Street.  It was opened by by the Right Hon Lord Provost of Edinburgh.

The EPS President said in his opening remarks:

"The Society, which has an approximate membership of 450, has always had in its ranks men who were not unknown in the artistic and scientific world."

There were four classes of photograph in this year's exhibition; two more sections than in recent years, and including a class for lantern slides.  The classes were:

I

Framed Pictures (any subject) 

Open to All

II

Framed Pictures (any subject 

Open to Members Only

III

Framed Pictures (any subject )

Open to Members who have not previously gained a Medal at EPS Exhibition

IV

Lantern Slides in sets of four  

Open to All

Looking at the titles of the award winning entries (below) there seems to have been a particular interest in capturing the mood of  landscape photography.

Exhibition Entertainment

Entertainment was provided during the exhibition.  The tradition of giving lectures of a popular nature on each of the Saturday evenings continued, but this year there were also six evenings when the lantern slides were shown:
