Doro Zinn - Save It For A Rainy Day
6th July - 8th September

Talk and Reception: Saturday 6th July, 3pm.

Set between tower blocks and newly built houses are the Gorbals, which became famous as being one of the highest populated areas in Europe around the beginning of the 20th century as well as being one of the poorest, with many migrants from Italy and Ireland. This is Zinn’s encounter with the place and people and is an intimate portrait and story of the resilience of people in the Gorbals.

This work is the outcome of an exchange residency in 2018 between Street Level and Ostkreuz Association, supported by Festival 2018, and Goethe Institute, Glasgow.

An exhibition minigraph is available with an article by John McDougall.

Doro Zinn studied Political Sciences and Psychology in Vienna and photography at Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie in Berlin. Identity, marginalization and belonging are the subjects that concern her. She approaches these subjects engaging closely with the persons she photographs and working together with them on the outcome, conveying a deliberately personal approach. Her work has been published in numerous magazines and newspapers and exhibited internationally in venues such as Riga Photomonth and f-stop Festival. 

A limited run publication will be available and a zine signing will take place during the reception on 6th July.
