We're three Glasgow-based artists, in our final year as Fine Art undergraduates at GSA. Our work explores the interaction of people to spaces, and forms of non-verbal communication within a lens-based framework. Collectively we draw our inspiration from the city we live in, and the social nature of urban space in a broader context:

Alfonso Ramundo is an Italian photographer who has lived in Glasgow for almost two decades. Throughout his career, he has focused on different areas of photography but there has always been a constant theme in his work - decadent structures of any kind. As a child, he had a fascination for abandoned houses in the countryside near his hometown. Since then, Alfonso has spent his life photographing old buildings, showing them in their present form - often neglected and forgotten but with a story to tell.
This exhibition guides the viewer on a journey through human civilization, and examines the traces we leave behind either as a group or as an individual when a change in patterns, movements or power occurs.
