I run the glasgowsculpture.com website and contribute to many publications and restoration projects, and lecture on the city's sculpture and sculptors.
From 1998-2001, I contributed research and photography to Ray McKenzie's books Sculpture in Glasgow and Public Sculpture of Glasgow (Joint-winner of the 2002 Saltire Society Scottish Research Book of the Year), for which I compiled the Biography and Lost Works sections, and worked on the PMSA Glasgow Sculpture Recording Project, co-ordinated by Ray McKenzie at Glasgow School of Art.
In recent years I have contributed research and advice to a number of restoration projects in Glasgow, the most important of which have been the restoration of the Doulton Fountain on Glasgow Green, and the Stewart Memorial Fountain in Kelvingrove Park.
As well as producing the Glasgow - City of Sculpture website, I am currently working on surveys of sculpture in Paisley; Glasgow's cemeteries, including the Necropolis; and the city's lost sculpture and forgotten fountains.
I have also appeared in the national press and on radio and television, including the BBC 's The One Show, discussing Glasgow sculpture, and lecture throughout Scotland on the subject.
I have been photographing Glasgow's buildings and sculpture for over thirty years, off and on, with the emphasis on sculpture occupying the last two decades or more. However, I managed to capture some street scenes and buildings in the 1980s and 90s which are no longer with us, and which inspired my enduring interest in the city's lost buildings and sculpture. I look forward to uploading some of these images soon, and to sharing them with everyone interested in the changing face of the city.
