`Witness to Mortality: Photographs by Joseph McKenzie'

Joseph McKenzie's photographs of urban decay and social entropy in Scotland and Ireland in the Sixties made his reputation as one of Britain's most prolific and best-regarded documentary photographers. In addition to "Down among the Dead Men" and "Gorbals Revisited", McKenzie's well-known essays on the Gorbals and its inhabitants, "Hibernian Images" contrasts the embattled lives of the Northern Irish with the more peaceful existence led by those in the South during the late Sixties.

To February, Gallery of Modern Art, Queen Street, Glasgow (0141 229 1996).
