The skyline of Glasgow has been radically transformed as high rise tower blocks have been blown down and bulldozed. 30% of the city’s high rise flats have disappeared since 2006, communities dispersed across the city and Dalmarnock have ‘been raised from the ashes’ via the Commonwealth Games. Does this Disappearing Glasgow herald a renaissance in the city?
Photographer and filmmaker Chris Leslie is widely acknowledged as the most consistent chronicler of the city’s recent history. This new multimedia exhibition and accompanying book ‘Disappearing Glasgow’ documents an era of spectacular change in Glasgow through photography and film.
