Description Glaschu is Scottish Gaelic for Glasgow meaning The Dear Green or The Dear Green Place. Photograph taken on Buchanan Street looking north towards The Royal Concert Hall. The Victorian buildings on the left housed the former Glasgow Stock Exchange, now a mix of offices and shops. The building with the spire is the St Georges Tron Parish Church in what used to be called St Georges Square, renamed Nelson Mandela Square in the 1970s by Glasgow City Council. The glass building on the right is the Clydesdale Bank.
Dorit Fuhg, Dresden Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement Inspired by traditional film photography, I focus on black & white photography. My passion as a photographer is to capture the mood of a scene as well as the essence of a thing. In my images I enjoy bringing out the personality and uniqueness of what I see. The driving force behind making pictures is my interest in anything naturally beautiful, recording moments and documenting my surrounding.
I have shown my work at exhibitions in Brighton, UK, Toronto, Canada and Dresden, Germany. Some of my photographs have been featured in prestigious international publications such as the Museum of Digital Fine Art and the 1x.com Year Book, a highly curated book of 1x.com.
As Co-Founder of the Art-for-Cancer Group, I helped build a network of artists, who donate part of their sales proceeds to cancer charities of their choice. The group consists of over three hundred members worldwide. I was born 1973 in Lauter/Saxony, and returned to Germany in 2012 after living abroad in Switzerland, Norway and the UK for fourteen years. I now live in Dresden and focus on capturing the unique atmosphere of my new home town and the surrounding landscapes.
