THE life of film-maker and photographer David Peat will be celebrated with a special exhibition opening this Friday at Streetlevel Photoworks in Glasgow. The exhibition, David Peat: A Retrospective, features Peat's renowned interpretation of the street photography genre. His earliest work, a portfolio from 1968 – shot when he was just 21 – is included in this exhibition and includes images of the street life of children in Glasgow, taken against the background of crumbling tenement buildings. A book, An Eye on the Street, is being published by Renaissance Press to coincide with the exhibition. It will be launched on June 16 and includes contributions from Alan Spence, Robin Gillanders and Billy Connolly.
