Oscar Marzaroli Shades of Grey

GAR0253 Photography Books ‘Shades of Grey’

DESCRIPTION “SHADES OF GREY – Glasgow 1956-1987”
Photographs by Oscar Marzaroli
Words by William McIlvanney

While William Mcilvannev, writer, was steeping himself in the atmosphere of mid-fifties Glasgow as a student. Oscar Marzaroli, photographer, was beginning work as a freelance photojournalist in the city. One way or another. Glasgow has remained an enduring influence on both men. In ‘Shades of Grey’, each pays their particular tribute to a famous city in the process of change. Marzaroli’s photographs record not only the fabric of Glasgow old and new but also, through photo sequences, the character and the characters of the city. His view of Glasgow can bear comparison with other important photographers’ views of their favored places. No other photographer has caught the look and life of Glasgow with comparable accuracy and sympathy or produced images that we can relate to so strongly. This comprehensive collection of Marzaroli’s Glasgow photographs, selected from thousands of prints, is not just another book of photographs. It is a work that will rapidly become a permanent part of Scotland’s visual heritage. McIlvanney’s text, with its subjective impressions, complements perfectly the objective images from Marzaroli’s camera.
