Prominent documentary photographer Martin Parr will be displaying his satirical view of Scotland in an exhibition, Martin Parr: Think of Scotland, that will run until Sunday 27 August open five days per week, from Thursday to Monday at the grand country house in the southside of the city this summer.
Visitors to the exhibition at Pollok House are asked to contribute their voice by leaving comments about the images on display. The labels for each photograph have been designed as a notebook and visitors are encouraged to contribute by writing their reactions to the nostalgic images, which span a period from the 1990s to the 2010s and explore typical leisure activities and national Scottish stereotypes.
“I am delighted to see my images come to Pollok House in Glasgow. So many of the show’s images were taken here and the atmosphere in Glasgow is so unique. I have tried to capture this in my images.” - Martin Parr
