Oscar Marzaroli Exhibition - Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow - 7 Dec to 15 Mar

Date Published 
Sat 7 Dec 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday 7th December, 3 - 5pm. Free and all welcome.

Oscar Marzaroli is arguably Scotland’s most notable documentary photographer. His photographs and films of Glasgow from the 1950s through to the 1980s captured a period of enormous change with images of people going about their lives in the city, at work and at leisure.

Many of the black and white images depict children playing in the streets, and many simply capture the city in bygone days. Some of his most well known images detail Glasgow's Gorbals community in the 1960s. He was a photographer of great ability who captured the nature of the city and people with sensitivity and empathy. Whilst many of Marzaroli’s photographs of Glasgow are instantly recognisable, such as ‘The Castlemilk Lads’ or ‘The Golden Haired Lass’, Marzaroli worked all over Scotland and further afield as a photographer and filmmaker. An extensive range of the subject matter will be embraced in this exhibition.
