What Hercules Might See Image 2
PHOTOGRAPHER Peter Iain Campbell’s exhibition on the transformation of Dumbarton is on display at The Arches.
What Hercules Might See (Part III), contains images from the meeting point of the Leven and Clyde rivers and is part of the larger body of the Glasgow-based professional’s work.
The exhibition focuses on the changes to an area of land and the change in people living there as a result of the decline in industry.
Some of the images imagine the original designer and builder of the Cutty Sark, Hercules Linton, embarking on a spiritual odyssey back to the town where his clipper ship was completed.
Linton sees a bleak, unfamiliar landscape, stripped of the shipbuilding and breaking yards that dominated the area for almost 160 years.
The free exhibition is in the Arches foyer space until July 26, and is open from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 11pm.
