This is presented in conjunction with the 2018 St Andrews Photography Festival, 'Stereo Views of Scotland' which runs throughout the month of October.
The topics are broad reaching and will cover both the historic as well as the contemporary. This two day conference is an opportunity for researchers, historians, photographers, collectors, curators, collections staff and photo-enthusiasts alike to come together, in the home of Scottish Photography and picturesque town of St Andrews to gain a better understanding of the birth, development and evolving media that is stereoscopy.
