Dougie Wallace, also known as Glasweegee is a Scottish street photographer, recognised for his social documentary projects and direct style as well as for appearing in What do Artists do All Day for the BBC. His work is informed by society’s trends and incongruities. He translates what he sees through the lens into wit, criticism and humorous vignettes to convey a distinct point of view.
He attributes his unique vision to his Glasgow up-bringing, which has shaped his what is often described as his 'visually exaggerated' and 'hard-edged' style. This is combined with two decades of living in and around London’s fashionable Shoreditch, witnessing the transformation of his own neighbourhood, from cultural wasteland to cool Mecca, helping him develop an eye for the tragi-comic, messy side of uninhibited human behaviour.
He has had six books of his work published, 'Eastended' and 'Well Heeled' being the most prominent. He has also been awarded Second Prize in the Portraiture category of the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards.
