Thomas Annan: Photographer of Glasgow
May 23 - August 13, 2017

During the rise of industry in nineteenth-century Scotland, Thomas Annan ranked as the preeminent photographer in Glasgow. Best known for his haunting images of tenements on the verge of demolition—often considered precursors of the documentary tradition in photography—he prodigiously recorded the people, the social landscape, and the built environment of Glasgow and its outskirts for more than twenty-five years. This exhibition is the first to survey his industrious career and legacy as photographer and printer.
