Today is World Photography Day. The National Trust for Scotland holds thousands of photographic images related to dozens of properties in its collections, from nineteenth century glass plates and prints to modern slides. The Morton Photographic Project has spent the past few years digitising, cataloguing, researching and raising the profile of these collections. Ben Reiss, the Morton Photography Project Curator, has been undertaking this work over the last 18 months, and will share collections, stories and projects from properties as diverse as Canna House, Brodie Castle and Tenement House.
