David Octavius Hill (1802–70) was a pioneer photographer, painter, and lithographer. In 1843, he entered into partnership with the young photographer Robert Adamson, and in the next four years they produced an extraordinary body of original and inventive work. This book analyzes the photographic partnership, explains its remarkable success, and places it in the context of Hill's life and times.
