This image became one of the most iconic images from the ‘Bairns and Backstreets’ exhibition which was curated by Alison Brown and took place at Scotland Street Museum in 2002. She writes 'Eric recounted that when taking this picture the children ‘were very keen to pose and the wee boy with the short trousers on the left said “we have to get Susie’s doll in the picture”.

22/06/2020

On Street Level's Facebook and Instagram, daily posts on the project 'Everyday Racism' by Karen Gordon in collaboration with various individuals in Glasgow.

'Everyday Racism' is a series of ten environmental portraits exploring instances of micro-acts of racism. The project is a collaboration between people from minority ethnic backgrounds in Glasgow with experience of racism and photographer Karen Gordon. The photographs, and the stories that accompany them, raise awareness of and challenge us all to an open conversation about racism.

Sungjun's Story #2
"As a guy who's lived in UK for the best part of my life, I haven't really seen myself as "being different". Perhaps it was because there weren't that many travellers on the day or maybe it was because I was with another non-white (different ethnicity to mine) at the time. But I do recall the gaze I received that day. I've never felt more self-conscious and paranoid about the looks people gave me. Through this medium, I hope it will spread awareness of some of the feelings that the non-whites face in the UK on a frequent basis and try to work towards removing everyday racism-biases all together."

As access to the arts is limited during lockdown Street Level Photoworks have decided to make Photo-Recipe cards for people to experiment with at home. These use everyday household items and are a great creative activity to do with kids during this fantastic weather!

The first two recipes are for Turmeric and Spinach Anthotypes. Street Level are encouraging people to try these processes out and share the results with us!

You can use #photorecipe2020 on instagram @streetlevelphotoworks and twitter @StreetLevel or email your pictures to [email protected]

Come and hear the Photographers talk about their work - 1pm on Saturday 2nd November in Street Level, followed by exhibition reception in Trongate 103 gallery.

November marks Cuba's 500th anniversary of its capital city Havana. Twinned with Glasgow in 2002, this city will be the focus of a unique photography exhibition, part of Havana Glasgow Film Festival (HGFF), by two distinguished photographers: Roberto Chile from Havana and Dougie Souness from Glasgow. Roberto Chile was born in Havana and has written and directed several features about Cuban culture. He accompanied Fidel Castro, the leader of the Cuban Revolution, on his travels through Cuba and the world from 1984 to 2006. Dougie Souness is a Scottish photographer based in Glasgow. He has made many photographic journeys to Cuba, capturing at first hand the people, infrastructure, landscapes and wildlife throughout the country. He is well known for his artist management role at music company No Half Measures, who work with the groups Wet Wet Wet, Hue and Cry, Red Sky July and Anchor Lane.
