The Photos.app is installed as a part of the system and cannot be installed separately, just like Mail or Contacts.

To get Photos installed, you need to install a newer system. The first version of MacOS X, that comes with Photos is MacOS 10.10.3, YoYosemite. There is no way to run Photos on a Mavericks system.


If your Photos are now in a Photos Library, you cannot open the Photos Library in an older version of Photos. You need at least the version of Photos that created the library.

Can you restore a version of your iPhoto Library or Aperture Library, that you used, before you upgraded to a newer system? You need to restore a version of your iPhoto/Aperture library that you used with Mavericks.
