These photographs by Keith Ingham span the time from his first few years in Glasgow to the present. They form two groups of landscapes: one of images made in the 1970s and the other made in the last two years. In the time between much has changed. The 1970s were a difficult decade of inflation and industrial strife across the UK, during which Glasgow strove to hang on the last remnants of its once proud industrial heritage. The city had to wait until the 1980s to realise that it was indeed "miles better". It is ironic that after an intervening period of prosperity and growth we are perhaps moving into another turbulent decade.

The axioms and mores of the visual arts have shifted too. While the early images were made simply to document places in Glasgow, the later group are more reflective and intuitive, even to some degree conceptual in their choice of subject. Inevitably, the photographer has also changed. At a new stage of life, perspectives and horizons have adjusted and the approach becomes more contemplative. These are personal landscapes.

Born and raised in England, Keith Ingham moved to Glasgow, Scotland in the early 1970s after a period in Canada. He also worked in Sweden for a year. Shortly after arriving in Glasgow he joined a group active in social documentary photography and spent several years recording changes in the physical and social structure of the city. In the last decade he has embraced digital photography and wrestled with the associated challenge of colour in his images.

His work has been exhibited widely in Scotland and in several European cities, and is in the Scottish National Photography Archive and the City of Glasgow collection. He continues to exhibit, most recently in Lithuania in September 2011.

This exhibition compliments "The Glesga That I Used to Know. 70s Glasgow: Through the Lens" to which Keith Ingham also contributes. Scotland Street School Museum, 225 Scotland Street, Glasgow G4 0RH.
