Photographer Gifts One Million Images That Help Tell the Story of Scotland

A highly-regarded Scottish photographer has donated more than one million of his images to a university archive with the collection capturing more than 30 years of the ways of a nation.

“There is a great need for photographers to work in a documentary fashion. That is why archives like St Andrews are so important for the nation.”
