Larry Herman: Clydeside 1974 – 1976
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. Join us over the October school holidays for fun family activities.
School workshops for primary pupils are available. Call 01236 638352 to book.

Wee Winter Tales
Come along to our winter exhibition to play and learn with short films, stories and activities. It’s most suitable for younger children and their carers, however, all are welcome. There are giant story books to explore, you can make a ‘snow angel’ and take a photograph, read a story in the giant ‘tree’, dress up and draw. Related drop-in activities take place every Saturday and during the school Christmas holidays. We will also offer Christmas themed workshops for schools and early years. Call 01236 638352 for more information.
