EPS Member

Sandy Cleland, a Member of Edinburgh Photographic Society for over 40 years, was President of the society for 3 years from 1985.  His daughter, Karen Berry, almost twenty years later, for 3 years from 2004.

International Exhibitor

Sandy Cleland is well known in Edinburgh, and around the world, for his Nature Photography, though his International Exhibition acceptances and Medals have been gained for his other work  as well as his Nature Photography.

International Selector

Sandy has been a Selector for some of the major International Exhibitions around the world, including annual exhibitions of the Royal Photographic Society  in which he is now a very active member.

Royal Photographic Society

Sandy was awarded the Fenton Medal, and Honorary Membership of the RPS, in 2005.  This Medal is named after Roger Fenton, one of the founders of the RPS.  Up to three Fenton Medals are award annually to  persons who have made outstanding contributions to the work of The Royal Photographic Society.

Sandy currently serves on the Distinctions Advisory and Fellowship Boards of the RPS and was Chairman of the Selectors for the 155th RPS International Print Exhibition in 2012.

 

The London Salon

Neil Scott announced to EPS Members, in November 2012, that Sandy Cleland, a former President of the society had been invited to join the London Salon.

To celebrate this news, EPS held a 'surprise event for Sandy on the evening of 15 December  2012 during which Sandy was presented with a Commemorative Medal.

Please scroll down this page to see:

Sandy Elected to London Salon

"We have just heard that EPS member Sandy Cleland FRPS has been invited to join the London Salon of Photography. 

This is a unique body of photographers, from worldwide membership, whose sole aim is to exhibit, annually, the very best of pictorial photographic imagery.

Membership of the Salon is by invitation only and there are currently only 43 members.

It is a great honour to be selected to membership and it must be one of the most exclusive groups in photography today.  Sandy told us that he was absolutely over the moon when he opened the letter.

The only previous EPS member to be invited to the Salon was Gracie Alison in 1964.  Gracie was secretary of EPS from 1946 to 1985."

History of the Salon

"The roots of this London Salon go back to the year 1893 when it was formed as "The Linked Ring", becoming the London Salon in 1910 when the first London Salon Exhibition was held.

It was essentially a breakaway group from the RPS, with expressed concerns that the RPS was more concerned with the science of photography.  Its sole purpose is to organise the annual London Salon of Photography.

The Salon says: "The aim of the salon is to exhibit only that class of photographic work in which there is distinct evidence of artistic feeling and execution".

Like the Edinburgh International Exhibition, the London Salon is for prints only, and they also accept only around 200 from the annual entry of around 2000."

Other Members of the Salon

"Sandy has entered prints to the London Salon for many years and has had acceptances in most years that he entered. He has also won two Salon Medals, one in the centenary year, 2011 and one this year.

Sandy becomes the 43rd member of this prestigious international group of photographers, and is now one of two  Scottish photographers, along with Rikki ONeill.

Margaret Salisbury tells us that there have only ever been around 200 members of the London Salon since its inception.  Other members include the three Honorary Vice Presidents of EPS:

Margaret Salisbury

Bob Moore

-  Bill Wisden.

Other Members of the Salon who have judged the Edinburgh Exhibition include:

 Leigh Preston

Chris Hinterobermaier

John Chamberlin

Steven Le Prevost

Ann Miles

-  Irene Froy

Alan Millward

David Wheeler

Anne Sutcliffe."

The Linked Ring

Forerunner to 'The London Salon'

Members of the Linked Ring

These are a few of the photographers who were members of The Linked Ring in the late-19th and early 20th centuries:

Henry Peach Robinson 1830-1901 was the founder.  He was an English artist and pictorialist photographer, best known for his combination printing, using a number of different negatives to create a single print.  He was a regular Exhibitor in Edinburgh winning several Bronze and Silver Medals at The Photographic Society of Scotland's exhibitions between 1858 and 1864, and a Gold Medal at the Edinburgh Photographic Society Exhibition in 1882.  Here are three of his combination prints that he submitted to exhibitions in Edinburgh.

James Craig Annan 1864-1946 was a Scottish photographer who learnt the Photogravure process in Vienna from its inventor and introduced the process into his family's business, T&R Allen, Glasgow.  The photogravures that his company produced included views of the old closes of Glasgow.  See the three examples below.
