Goose Flesh began life in 2013, as an independent, non-profit photography zine, based in Glasgow and edited by Sarah Amy Fishlock. Started with a grant from Ideastap, Goose Flesh aims to showcase the work of emerging and established artists who are Glasgow born, based, or associated, as well as occasionally featuring the work of friends from other places. The zine is intended to showcase this work in a compact, affordable form, inviting the viewer to construct their own narratives from each sequence of images. Goose Flesh embraces all photographic mediums, from large-format to phone photography, providing a unique insight into each photographer’s viewpoint on the world around them. Each volume is introduced by a Glasgow-linked writer whose subject is not primarily photography, offering further perspectives that demonstrate photography’s effects in the wider world.
Stock Take is a collection of new images by contributors to Goose Flesh’s first four volumes, a playful look at the concept of the retrospective and a celebration of the immense photographic energy our city has to offer. This exhibition features work by Alan Knox, Claire Maxwell, Ross Finnie, Robert Ormerod, Craig Gibson, Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte, Veronica Melendez, Sandy Carson, Scott Caruth, Heidi Kuisma, Jenny Wicks, Kate Oldham, Michael Thomas Jones, Tristan Hutchinson, Alishia Farnan, Sarah Amy Fishlock and Emily Macinnes.
A special edition of Goose Flesh commemorating the show will be launched on Thursday 4th June from 6-8pm. All welcome.
