The ongoing Social-Documentary project, 'The Glasgow Effect', relates to numerous studies on how Glaswegian people tend to die prematurely, more so than any other city in the UK. The image here illustrates non-place where sections of the east end community continue to go unnoticed, neglected and forgotten. I have experimented with liminal space to construct a surreal environment from the reality of the situation. The rationale behind the collaborative work is to raise awareness on this ongoing issue.

I am in my 3rd and final year of BA Professional Photography where I am focusing my attention on the Documentary genre. I want to focus my attention on social awareness issues by telling an intriguing story that will not only aesthetically please the viewer but re-educate them on the subject matter. The imagery I create consists of candid moments, environmental portraits and interesting perspectives on the day to day lives people lead.
