When We Were Young Scottish National Portait GalleryAdd to Lightbox Download
The magic and wonder of childhood is the subject of a new exhibition of photographs at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery (SNPG) this autumn. When We Were Young delves into the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland to explore how the lives of children have fascinated photographers from the earliest days of the medium to the present.
More than 100 images, which capture children at play, at work, at school and at home reveal how the experience of being a child, and the ways in which they have been represented, have changed radically in the past 175 years.
