Roscoe Thomson: A Glasgow Fair
The Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock
Talk by the Photographer: Wednesday 20th September 6-8pm. Free, refreshments provided.
Roscoe Thomson’s A Glasgow Fair recalls the city’s traditional holiday fortnight by re-imagining stories passed down through generations like precious family heirlooms. It is created from the memories of people and places as experienced by others rather than any kind of then-and-now style comparison.
A Glasgow Fair is an impressionistic work illustrating the blurred lines between reality and fiction. It’s been made by retracing a series of journeys to various towns such as Millport, Rothesay, Dunoon, Largs, Southbeach, Saltcoats.
