Daguerreotype of little girl holding a framed daguerreotype of a man

We’re very pleased to be working on a new MOOC project in partnership with our colleagues Alison Morrison-Low and Christine McLean at the National Museum. It’s to run in tandem with a major new exhibition coming up in Edinburgh in June 2015 called Photography: A Victorian Sensation, which promises the chance to ‘Meet the pioneers of photography and discover how the Victorian craze for the photograph transformed the way we capture images today and mirrors our own modern-day fascination for recording the world around us.’

More on this to follow!
