About Alan Dimmick: Photographs at Stirling University, 2017

Alan Dimmick was the Art Collection’s Photographer in Residence over the course of the University’s 50th anniversary year in 2017. His remit was to capture a ‘Portrait of the Campus’, exploring the unique natural, built and human environment of the University.

Whilst the University archives and Art Collection hold a collection of fine photographs from the early days of the University in the 1960s and ‘70s, relatively little had been done to document and explore the changing physical and human landscape of the campus in recent decades. Alan’s residency contributed to redressing this balance.

This exhibition showcases a selection of the photographs taken during Alan’s residency. The full collection has been deposited in the University archive; thus creating a rich artistic, contemporary record of the rhythm of life on campus and bringing up to date the historic photographic material already held in our collections.

Alan Dimmick was born in Glasgow in 1961. He bought his first camera (a Russian Zenith) in 1977, the same year that he converted the toilets in his secondary school annex into a darkroom. He went on to study photography at Glasgow College of Building and Printing from 1979–82 and was a founding member of Glasgow Photography Group, exhibiting at their inaugural exhibition in Hillhead Library in 1988. Since the mid-1990s Dimmick has documented the lively contemporary art and music scene of his home city, Glasgow, capturing many of the events that have shaped a significant period in Scottish culture.

Location: Pathfoot Gallery 4
