PHOTOGRAPHY by a late BAFTA-winning photographer is set to go on display at Clydebank Museum.

The exhibition of street photography by photographer David Peat, who died in 2012, will combine prints from An Eye On The Street, a collection of photographs David shot in Glasgow in 1968, with some of his later international work.

His Glasgow ‘68 collection is now recognised for its archival importance, and 40 of the images are held in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.

As well as being an internationally-renowned stills photographer, David also shot a series of intimate observational documentaries as a director and cameraman, as well as recording footage from Northern Ireland during the Troubles, chasing world rally cars from helicopters and shooting a series of arts films for cinema and television, among them the first two films featuring Billy Connolly, Clydeoscope and Big Banana Feet.

The 65-year-old covered subjects as diverse as an intensive care unit in Belfast at the height of the Troubles (Man Alive: Fighting for Life, 1978) to the fishing industry in the North East (Gutted, 2004) and ironically life in a cancer hospice, (Life’s Too Short, 2006).

David, who died at his home on April 16, left behind wife Patricia and two grown-up children.

Patricia told the Post: “David would be delighted to know that the exhibition has come back to Glasgow and people will be able to see his work.”

The exhibition will be on display from August 12 to October 21 at the Clydebank Museum and Art Gallery, Dumbarton Road.

Patricia added she’s always looking for the people who featured in David’s photographs to come forward or who knew people who feature in the photographs to get in touch. If you can help, get in touch by emailing
