Photographer Simon Murphy aims to give an insight into the diverse and vibrant area of Govanhill with a series of portraits to be displayed in windows as part of a photo trail during the Govanhill International Festival 2020.
Simon Murphy began photographing Govanhill when he lived there in the early 2000s, and a number of newspapers have been produced which have been distributed in local cafe’s and shops. This photo-trail is part of an ongoing project.
His career as a photojournalist has enabled him to travel extensively shooting human interest stories in countries such as Bangladesh, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Cambodia. His portraiture subjects range from individuals such as the Dalai Lama to musicians and actors including Noel Gallagher, Bobby Gillespie and John Hurt.
