Larry Herman: Clydeside 1974-76

-

North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre
08 September - 03 November

Walk and Talk with Larry Herman, Saturday 8th September at 2pm, following by refreshments.

Clydeside 1974-76 covers a vast geographical area from Elvanfoot to Stepps, Paisley to Greenock, as well as many rural districts where people worked in farming, forestry, fishing and tourism. This Clydeside was one of the two or three most intensely industrialised regions of Europe and during the mid 70’s was experiencing acute economic decline. For this exhibition, Herman revisited his original project which, until its exhibition Street Level, was not seen since it was first exhibited at the Third Eye Centre, Glasgow, in 1976 and in the pages of the London based photojournal Camerawork. In this special exhibition at North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre in Motherwell, 73 of the hand printed silver gelatine prints will be on display, with some from Ravenscraig, a dismantled hot strip steel mill, which up until its closure in 1992, was the steel production capital of Scotland.

Clydeside 1974-76 is a Street Level Photoworks Touring Exhibition. The work was originally shown at Street Level Photoworks in October 2016, click here for more information.

As part of the exhibition, Street Level have produced a video work that showcases some of the exhibited works alongside a recent interview with Larry about the project. You can watch this via our YouTube channel:
