THIS is Scotland’s biggest city as you’ve never seen it before.
A new book featuring stunning images of Glasgow, released this Thursday, shows the beautiful side of the “no mean city”.
Photographer Allan Wright has collected 240 stunning snaps of the city’s landmarks, cityscapes and its people in a collection called Glasgow Now. Wright’s new book includes striking shots of famous landmarks such as the SSE Hydro, Celtic Park, Ibrox, Bell’s Bridge and the Barras, encapsulating everything that residents and visitors know and love about the city.
“There’s an infectious zeal for life on the streets of Glasgow these days,” said Wright. “It’s vibrant, bold and confident – it’s a city on the move and in a great direction which others should be inspired by.
“I’ve spent two years working on this book and during that time I’ve encountered an extraordinarily diverse and vibrant community where smiles are always plentiful.
“I spent much of my childhood and teenage years in Glasgow, as did my co-author Des Dillon – both of us now live in Galloway in the south-west of Scotland.
“This book is not an elaborate tourist promotion, neither is it a comprehensive description of Glasgow.
“However, it is the shared and longstanding personal engagement we both have with a city on the move. This is how it appears now. Catch it – it won’t stay this way for long.”
Glasgow Now is out on Thursday.
