'Man with a Camera' - Livestream
6.30pm Thursday 16th April
Live streamed through our facebook page
We are pleased to be hosting a special live stream screening of Man With a Camera (2014), which celebrates the life and work of Glasgow's pre-eminent photographer, using some of the 50,000 shots taken over thirty years - a moving portrait of a love affair between a man and his city, and the affection in which he is held today.
Marzaroli's black-and-white photographs have become synonymous with a post-war Scotland in the throes of regeneration. They captured both the aspects of the old, such as the rag-and-bone man in the Gorbals or the cockle gatherers of Barra, and the paraphernalia of the new - cranes, towers and construction at Glasgow's Charing Cross.
As Glasgow's landscape changes once again and the high-rises that Marzaroli documented going up are gradually being razed to the ground, this film celebrates Marzaroli's remarkable photographic legacy.
Running Time: 29 mins 30 secs. Filmed and Directed by Brian Ross / Produced by John Archer. Screened on BBC Two in 2014.
Many thanks to Hopscotch Films for their support in screening Man with a Camera.
