Dougie-Wallace

DOUGIE WALLACE
Photographer

London-based photographer Dougie Wallace grew up in Glasgow. He is recognised for his expressive social documentary and a distinct and direct style of street photography. As he says; ‘Human behaviour motivates my pictures. People, their interactions and emotions fascinate me… Translating this, through my lens, into social wit, criticism and humorous vignettes is what stimulates me.’

Largely self-taught, he took up photography seriously after having served four years in the army. Often known as ‘Glasweegee’, Wallace believes that his Glasgow upbringing has helped shape his style, which has been described as ‘hard edged’ and ‘visually exaggerated’, conveying a personalised point of view that is both believable and absurd. His work has featured in many publications including commissions for The New York Times and Stern Magazine, Germany. Represented by INSTITUTE.
