Clydeside 1974-76

Larry Herman

Street Level Photoworks

01 Oct - 27 Nov

Clydeside 1974-76 covers a vast geographical area from Elvanfoot to Stepps, Paisley to Greenock, as well as many rural districts where people worked in farming, forestry, fishing and tourism. This Clydeside was one of the two or three most intensely industrialised regions of Europe and during the mid 70’s was experiencing acute economic decline. For this exhibition, Herman has revisited his original project and hand printed a new set of over 70 silver gelatine prints. Many of Herman’s work was in the collection of the Scottish Arts Council, now dispersed to various holdings, including Glasgow Museums and Paisley Art Gallery and Museum.
