Peter Degnan was born in Glasgow and has been involved in photography since first acquiring a Zenith E SLR camera in 1976. In 2019 he began revisiting his archive of photographs made in Glasgow throughout the 1970s and 1980s and has recently self-published Mother Glasgow, The Glasgow Celtic Way and AhcumfaeGovan. Profiles of some of this work have appeared in The British Culture Archive and Document Scotland.
AcumfaeGovan builds on his previous publication Mother Glasgow but with a single focus on Govan in the 1970s and 80s. It contains thirty four B&W photographs taken in various locations around Govan including many that are no longer there. The destruction of the tenements and the community to some extent changed Govan forever, but memories linger on.
