G20 - Brian Sweeney
28th August - 3rd October
G20 is Brian Sweeney’s year long documentation of the contrasts of life and changes on the Glasgow branch of the Forth & Clyde Canal. The photographs were commissioned by Scottish Canals as a pre-cursor to large-scale re-development of a stretch of the canal between Anniesland and Pinkston, Glasgow. Sweeney’s photographs form a visual diary of his year spent walking the canal, documenting the people he met along the way and the changing face of the waterway from its industrial heyday to a site of leisure and recreation.
After graduating in photography in London in the early 90s, Sweeney went on to shoot for most music / fashion / style magazines around the globe in the nineties, after spells in London, Reykjavik, Oslo. Now based in Glasgow, he is still shooting lots of famous people and lots of not so famous people. He has exhibited all around Europe and two books of work are currently being finalised. His exhibition 'Great Stadiums of the North' is currently on show at Sogo Arts in Glasgow.
