Livestreamed through Facebook
For the seventh in our series of In Focus talks we will be joined by Kenny Farquharson who will be discussing two of Scotland's most influential street photographers; Oscar Marzaroli & Joseph McKenzie, and their parallel legacies documenting their native cities of Glasgow and Dundee.
Both Marzaroli and McKenzie's careers spanned the 1960s through to the 1980s, and both photographers share a unique reputation as recorders of their home cities.
In this short talk journalist and writer Kenny Farquharson will discuss both the similiarities and differences in approach of two of Scotland's most notable documentary photographers.
A Love Letter to Dundee: Joseph McKenzie Photographs 1964-1987 is on show at The McManus, Dundee until 24th October 2021.
