The life or death mask is in many ways the sculptural analogue of the photographic portrait. Both suggest direct traces from life, involve positive and negative, and evoke a mysterious connection between a living, breathing subject and a captured image. The drive to capture true likenesses in the early 19th century was partly generated by the pseudo- science of phrenology. As a by-product of this, cast collections such as those of the Edinburgh Phrenological Society, have preserved haunting likenesses via life and death masks from individuals living 150 to over 200 years ago.Through her photographs Joanna Kane has taken these subjects out of the categories and hierarchies of their phrenological context. They no longer appear as disembodied scientific specimens, but as photographically embodied portraits of individual men and women - many of whom lived before the invention or popular use of photography. The title, "The Somnambulists", is a reference to mesmerism and phreno-mesmerism, which were current at the time from which many of the casts originate from. The resulting portraits appear to exist in an ambiguous suspended state between life, death and sleep.

The committed realism of working-class photography in the 1930s met the political developments of the time with an enlightening impetus. Among the first ranks of these socially motivated photographers, such as Paul Strand or Tina Modotti, was the Viennese photographer Edith Tudor-Hart (1908-1973), who had close ties to the communist party. The Jewish photographer took an introductory course at the Bauhaus in Dessau, and in 1933, she married an Englishman who supported the labor movement. The couple fled to Great Britain, where she became posthumously infamous for supplying recruits to the group of Soviet spies known as the Cambridge Five, until the ring was broken up in the 1960s.For her sensitive black-and-white photographs Tudor-Hart used a medium-format camera, shooting pictures from the hip, which allowed her to communicate freely with her models while working. This volume features her unpretentious, documentary-style photographs on social themes, which were taken in Vienna, London, Wales, and Scotland.

Since the practical invention of photography in the 1840s, Scotland has been at the centre of the history and development of the medium. The Scottish National Portrait Gallery - which houses the Scottish National Photography Collection - and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, hold outstanding collections of photographic art spanning three centuries. Included are figures such as D.O. Hill and Robert Adamson, Julia Margaret Cameron, Thomas Annan, Alfred Stieglitz, Robert Capa, Bill Brandt, Annie Leibovitz and Andreas Gursky. This book offers a detailed guide to the collections as well as an accessible and informative introduction to photography. This revised edition includes recently commissioned photography and significant new acquisitions, with works by Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman and Robert Mapplethorpe.
