New York born photographer Larry Herman documented Clydeside in the 1970s at a time when this heavily industrialised region was experiencing acute economic decline. Clydeside covers a vast geographical area, including North Lanarkshire. Several local images feature, including Ravenscraig Steelworks, Auchinlea Brickworks, Cleland, Motherwell and Stepps. The exhibition gives an intimate glimpse into the world of work and local industries on the cusp of decline.
In this exhibition, Herman was invited by Street Level to revisit his original project from which he has produced a new set of stunning black and white, silver gelatine photographs he had printed in his flat in Bethnal Green, London. This is a Street Level Photoworks touring exhibition.
