Sunday 28th July
Our hugely popular Glasgow Through the Decades: A Photography Walking Tour returns for a second year as part of the Merchant City Festival!
This year our unique guided tour will be led by award-winning photographer and Document Scotland founding member Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert.
The tour will commence with an introduction by Robert John Henderson of his exhibition 'In Praise of Darkness and Light' , and that of Doro Zinn's 'Save It For A Rainy Day', made in and around the Gorbals, both on now at Street Level Photoworks.
The tour will cover some of the inner East of Glasgow, it's hidden past and present as depicted in the photographs of some leading documentary photographers. It will reference images over the decades by Thomas Annan, Oscar Marzaroli, Joseph McKenzie, Hugh Hood, Chris Leslie as well as Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert's own images and stories of photographing the changing face of the city.
This is a guided walk, led by Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, to locations that feature in photographs by the listed artists above. Visual handouts will be available for attendees to reference. The walk will take in the Bridgegait, Glasgow Cross/Saltmarket, London Road and the Barras and conclude back at Trongate 103.
Please note this is not a practical photography exercise though bringing your camera is welcome. It will cover a radius of approximately 2 miles in walking, and out with the initial visit to Street Level Photoworks, it will be conducted outdoors. Please dress for the weather! Open to all, though better suited to adults and older children.
