Scotland Through the Lens explores local and national history as captured by Scottish photographers. Come and take a closer look at photographs of people working at sea, living on the land and development of urban spaces over the past 175 years. The exhibition is drawn from the Special Collections at the University of St Andrews Library and highlights the way in which documentary photography offers alternative ways of seeing, recording and understanding events and situation that have shaped our world.
