"In the Blink of an Eye" by Ali Bacon (English Edition)
In 1843, Edinburgh artist, David Octavius Hill meets Robert Adamson from St Andrews and an iconic partnership is born. Hill is already a popular and charismatic figure in the art world. Adamson is a technical genius in the new science of photography. The magic they create with their camera soon makes them the darlings of society.
In the Blink of an Eye is a re-imagining of Hill’s life in the words of those who met him and sat for him. Tender, tragic and sometimes humorous, these voices come together in a story of art and science, love and loss, friendship and photography
