Planes, Trains & Automobiles is the third in a series of thematic exhibitions exploring the exceptional permanent collection of photography at the National Galleries of Scotland.
Navigating land, sea and air this exhibition will consider the variety of modes of transport used around the world from the 1840s onwards. Through images by prominent artists including Alfred G Buckham (1879-1956), Humphrey Spender (1910-2005) and Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) it will examine how photography has been used to chart the technological innovations created by the desire to travel and the impact that transportation has on society. The exhibition will also consider how transport is part of our everyday lives, from the daily grind of commuting to the pleasure of holidays away from home.
