Tradeston – R.I.P

A popular definition of psychogeography is the effects of the geographical environment on the emotions and behaviour of individuals. Over the course of 3 months, photographer Alastair Jackson spent time traversing the abandoned tenements and burnt out wastelands of Tradeston in Glasgow, an area which is a testament to decades of poor planning.

The results display what Howard Devoto once described as ‘negative drive’. Tradeston, so close to the city centre, remains badly neglected, and the city needs impetus to regenerate it.

Tradeston – R.I.P by Alastair Jackson is at The Lighthouse, Mitchell Lane, Glasgow from 11 October – 27 November 2017
