Scotland is an outstanding and inspiring place for photos. But as a visual media lover, I fancy being exposed to perspectives that go beyond touristic clichés. So I am always on the lookout for opportunities to see what artists who experience such an environment have to say. Street Level Photoworks is the spot in Glasgow which has never failed to satisfy such curiosity.
Located in the city center, at the corner of the Russian Cafe, Cossachok and the Tron theatre, it is a creative space for artists and anybody interested in photography. The organization thrives in producing and participating in local and international art projects, providing an accessible or challenging programme of photo exhibitions, talks, and events around them. Access is generally open and free.
You can see a selection of works here, but the in-house shop offers a wider choice of prints, self-published zines, and books. Level Street Photoworks also offers courses and a darkroom studio for a small subscription if you get a chance to stay longer in town.
Before visiting, please make sure you check the website for dates – the place closes for a few days every couple of months for the installation of the projects.
