INDUSTRY + AESTHETICS: Industrial Photography of Historic Environment Scotland

30 June - 30 September, 2018

Scotland was amongst the first industrialised nations in the world. In the post-industrial age, our legacy of industrial sites and places can still be viewed negatively – synonymous with decline, pollution and blight upon our traditional view of Scotland.

Industry + Aesthetics is an  exhibition of Industrial Photography drawn from the National Record of the Historic Environment (NRHE) maintained by Historic Environment Scotland (HES). It invites the viewer to consider afresh the images,  and by association, the places in terms of their aesthetic value; their inherent artistic quality and the personal, emotional responses they invoke.
