You can also take part in our first Photo Challenge, inspired by one of Colin's most well known images.

Colin Gray began to take photographs of his parents in the 1960s when he was 5 years old. At family occasions, holidays and celebrations Gray would be allowed one shot from the single roll of film in a square box brownie tin. Over the next three decades his series of photographs has accumulated into an extensive body of work documenting his parents loving, working, homemaking and playing. He has published two photobooks; The Parents (Fotofeis, 1995) and In Sickness and in Health (MACK/Steidl, 2011).

Born in Hull in 1956, Colin Gray studied at the Royal College of Art, London and lives and works in Glasgow. He has exhibited worldwide including shows at Kunsthal, Rotterdam; Encontros da Imagem, Braga, Portugal; House of Photography, Prague; Street Level Photoworks, and the Australian Centre of Photography in Sydney. He has appeared in numerous publications including 'The Photograph as Contemporary Art' by Charlotte Cotton.
