Harry Benson: Exhibition of Photographs
The real point of our visit was to see an exhibition of world famous Glaswegian Photographer Harry Benson's marvellous thought provoking Photographs displayed in four specially redecorated rooms within Pollok House.
In a career spanning more than 70 years as a News and Portrait Photographer, Harry - a youthful 89 - has been able to capture many great historic moments as they happened in addition to portraits of the ritch and famous, he has the ability to capture the spirit and humour of ordinary Glasgow Folk.
From American Presidents, the Beatles, Dolly Parton, Protest Marches, Demonstrations, the Assassiination of Bobby Kennedy, Polaris Sailors to holidays in Saltcoats and Fans on the Terracing, this is a must see exhibition by a genius with a camera- the one and only Harry Benson.
The Exhibition in Pollok House which is a National Trust property runs until December and really is worth a visit.
