Tenement Kids And The City – Glasgow In 1975
“All of these photos were taken on a weekend return from art college to visit my parents in the east end of Glasgow in 1975,” says John J Brady. “I obviously hadn’t mastered the camera and light meter combo that I’d borrowed from the college and the original negatives are in a poor state. But the images capture a place in time.”
John’s photographs of Glasgow are authentic. The mixed light is reminiscent of Léonard Misonne’s extraordinary photographs. We see the city’s landmarks and children playing by their decaying tenements.
