Glasgow Belonging

Photographer, Robert Law examines the character of the rapidly changing Scottish city

Words by Robert Law

Glasgow Belonging is a series that examines the character of a rapidly changing Scottish city as it transitions from a heavy industrial past into a modern and confident future. Through a fast pace of rebuilding and ‘reimagining’, old features are vanishing on a daily basis. The city’s motto is ‘People Make Glasgow’. The question is, will the unique character and culture of the people endure through the consequences of gentrification and migration? Will the newer generations of Glaswegians feel the same sense of belonging to this great, changed city?”

As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.

Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.

As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
