The causes of Glasgow’s excess mortality lie in government policy – not with the individual and their lifestyle choices. During the 1970s and 80’s Glasgow was in a ‘managed decline’.
Kirsty Mackay spent 4 years traveling across the city researching, interviewing and photographing. This work links Mackay’s own experience growing up in the city, the loss of her father and three of her male friends, the diverse experiences of the people she photographed together with the latest research from the Glasgow Centre for Population Health.
We have 10 exclusively signed copies of the book and we’re also delighted to be hosting the book launch in October. More details on the event/ tickets below.
