Illustrated and updated talk by Chris Leslie

Chris Leslie began his career in Sarajevo in the 1990s, and then went on to document the changing landscape in Glasgow. His sold out 2017 book and multimedia project ‘Disappearing Glasgow’ featured photographs, essays and interviews with people from areas in Glasgow which have dramatically changed or disappeared in the last ten years including Dalmarnock and the Red Road Flats.

Disappearing Glasgow


The skyline of Glasgow has been radically transformed as high rise tower blocks have been blown down and bulldozed. 35% of the cities High Rise flats have disappeared since 2006, communities dispersed across the city and Dalmarnock in the East End has ‘been raised from the ashes’ via the Commonwealth Games. Does this Disappearing Glasgow herald a renaissance in the city?

BAFTA Scotland New Talent award-winning Photographer and filmmaker Chris Leslie is widely acknowledged as the most consistent chronicler of the city’s recent history. This 10-year long term multimedia project ‘Disappearing Glasgow’ documents an era of spectacular change in Glasgow through photography and video.
