Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Exhibition: David Peat at Panter and Hall, London, 13-22 January 2016

In the late 1960s. twenty-one year old David Peat created a portfolio of Glasgow photographs to help him gain entry to the film business.  Shortly before he died in 2012, Peat, long respected as a leading and award-winning cinematographer and documentary film maker, finally made these extraordinary images available to the public.  As perceptions of street life in Gorbals and other parts of Glasgow, they are beautifully crafted and touching, especially as the bulldozers were about to move in and an entire way of life was coming to an end.

This is the first time these photographs, hidden for forty years, will have been exhibited in London. 

Two books of David Peat's work will be available at Panter and Hall, Eye on the Street and Eye on the World..
