Last year was the bicentenary of the death of Duncan Ban Macintyre, whose poems and songs were much admired during his lifetime and continue to be so.  There was a one day conference here in Celtic and Scottish Studies for which I was invited to put together an exhibition and present a paper about it.  I will present that talk with a little extra background that was not necessary for the original audience.  The talk addresses the two questions of how one can photograph in the Highlands and possible interpretations of such photographs against the background of a tragic history whose consequences are still being played out.
