Paper read to EPS  -  1888

Sidney C Salmon read a paper entitled 'The Photographic Harvest of 1888' to Edinburgh Photographic Society on 5 December 1888.  He reviewed recent literature and spoke of the Art side of photography:

"Years ago the Artist-Painter looked with undisguised contempt upon the claims of the Photographer to be considered as an Artist but the Art side of Photography has made rapid strides during the past few years. .....

It is a gratifying sign of the advance which photography is making in art circles, to note that painters and sculptors are displaying a much keener interest in photography than formerly. ....."
