Coming Into View: Eric Watt’s Photographs of Glasgow

By Isobel McDonald

Eric Watt was a true pioneer of street photography in Scotland. A secondary school teacher, he spent his free time photographing Glasgow from the late 1950s until his death in 2005. Following his passing, Eric’s family gifted a large number of his images to Glasgow Museums, and since then work has been ongoing to archive this amazing legacy of over 2,000 images.

The book includes essays about Eric’s life and photographic career. It is divided in sections and is a mix of black and white and colour photos, revealing both the playful eye of Eric Watt and his careful way of capturing Glasgow on film.
