What's on in Glasgow Life
Angela Catlin "Natural Light II" - Photography Exhibition
In 1985 Angela Catlin released her debut book Natural Light with an accompanying exhibition at the Edinburgh International Book Festival that subsequently toured Scotland. The portraits of Scottish authors were heralded not only as spellbinding artistic works, but also as a broader encapsulation of a golden era of Scottish literature. Thirty years on, Catlin revisited the theme, featuring those seen in the original book such as Alasdair Gray, Jim Kelman and Liz Lochhead, but also casting light on another generation of literary greats including Denise Mina, Ali Smith, AL Kennedy and Alan Warner. This exhibition at Hillhead is the first time the whole project has been exhibited in Glasgow and includes 68 images of 58 authors.
