The first book dedicated to the work of Glasgow-based photographer Alan Dimmick, covering a broad range of Dimmick’s images taken over the last 40 years, from the first photo he remembers taking through to excerpts from his work and travels throughout Scotland up to the end of 2017. It features examples of Dimmick’s unique documentation of the people and places that are synonymous with Scotland’s internationally celebrated cultural scene. The book includes specially-commissioned essays, offering different perspectives on Dimmick’s work, by artists and writers such as Jacqueline Donachie, Moira Jeffrey, Francis McKee and Ross Sinclair.

Since the mid 1990s Dimmick has documented the lively contemporary art and music scene of his home city, Glasgow, capturing many of the events that have shaped a significant period in Scottish culture. In recent years, his images have been included in various publications and exhibitions of his work have been held at Street Level Photoworks and the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) in Glasgow and Stills: Centre for Photography in Edinburgh. In 2012, Glasgow Museums acquired a number of Dimmick’s photographs to add to their collection of Contemporary Scottish Art.
