The Beatles may have taken him to America but Harry Benson was a Glasgow boy first of all and, while he went on to capture some of the most iconic images of the past five decades across the world, it's to Glasgow he now returns to tell his story in this spectacular book of photographs.An award-winning photographer for "Life", "Vanity Fair" and "Architectural Digest" among others, Harry Benson's pictures, as well as his uncanny ability to always be in the right place at the right time, are legendary.
The Beatles pillow-fighting, Nixon resigning, the Berlin Wall falling - Harry can immortalise a moment like no one else. And here he documents his hometown with the same unmatched eye that has produced such exceptional pictures of every US President since Eisenhower as well as Elizabeth Taylor, Muhammad Ali, Michael Jackson and many more.Covering more than fifty years, "Harry Benson's Glasgow" shows the bygone city of shipyards and tenements as well as the bustling, modern metropolis.
It showcases the people of Glasgow who make the city what it is today and includes unforgettable and unique images of some of the most famous faces.
