Marvelous Maryhill: Glasgow Show Celebrating Locals

Maryhill Gorgeous, shot by Campbell Ramage, and now available to view on Halls of Maryhillburg.

Viewing is free, viewing photos is a love letter to the area and the people who live in it.

One Kelvindale resident said: “Normally I would just pass by, like most people. Either on my way to the supermarket, or to McDonald’s with the kids, I’m a Partick Thistle fan, so on Saturday I’ll get the games.”

“I just wanted to explore it more and see what’s in here, right on my doorstep and I think I did.”

The project, made up of dozens of black-and-white snapshots of residents, began in January.

At first a way to pass the time, it soon became an all-encompassing thing.

The 47-year-old added: “I met some new friends and have since ended up volunteering in the area with young people.

“I grew out of something that started as a way to get off the couch and now has a bigger role in my life, which is amazing.”

As part of the opening, some of the models from the photos came to the community hall to view the artwork, which was a treasured moment for the photographer.

He said: “It was really cool to see their reaction because people usually see them on Instagram, on the small screen, which is very different from seeing everyone else.

“To see them, as ordinary people being celebrated, was special.

“I didn’t have any negative reactions, everyone was so complimenting. I got some really nice messages from people saying they were definitely going back with their families.”
