It’s the last WEEKEND of the last EXHIBITION of the year at The Glasgow Gallery of Photography.

Michael McCann, the gallery’s founder and curator opened the exhibition space in the Savoy Centre, a 1970s shopping centre, earlier this year.

At this time of year, the Savoy Centre boasts pop-up craft and Christmas stalls, and it’s attracting new independent businesses, alongside some that that look like they’ve been there since the 70s,  which adds to the charm (check out the barbers). There’s a couple of tasty and stylish places to eat – definitely try the understated Chinese caf and there’s lovely places to sit for coffee nestled among the hotchpotch of traders – all in a haven round the corner from the bustling Buchanan street. 

Thanks Micheal for the cuppa and great chat when I popped in – and the lovely story about George.

My featured image is‘F YOU’ from the collaboration Not a ‘girly girl’ with Bea.

The image is intended as an ‘F you’, from Bea to anyone who thinks she needs to conform in any way. As Miss Transgender UK 2017/18 many people, including strangers, think they know something about her and have an opinion on how she should live her life. As Bea says, “ I’m a model, a pageant queen, a trans woman and a woman full stop – but I’m not a girly girl.” 

CRUTHACHADH / CREATION exhibition: 12-22 December 2019.
