SAVOY UNIT 72
PHOTOGRAPHY & PUBLICATION DESIGN
In May 2017, Joanne, a fellow masters student from the Glasgow School of Art, and I set up a pop-up photo studio in the Savoy Centre, one of Glasgow’s Brutalist landmarks. Operating from a disused shop – we kept the name of the former business, Head to Toe and offered free portraits for shoppers and employees. Savoy Unit 72 is the resulting photozine, printed as a tabloid. The images brim with the "good grace and bit of camp" that we think characterise the Glaswegian spirit. The texture of newsprint suits the aesthetic of the project and the large format of the newspaper offers an eye-catching, cheerful result.
