Dougie Wallace who is also known as Glasweegee, is a British street photographer from Glasgow, based in east London. Two exhibitions from the Paisley born photographer are showcasing at the Paisley museum.

Wallace’s latest work, Harrodsburg continuously pushes boundaries of the social documentary genre. The photographer turns his attention to the ‘one per cent’, Harrodsburg can be described as an up-close wealth safari exploring the wildlife that inhabits the super-rich London residential and retail district of Knightsbridge and Chelsea.

Road Wallah on the other hand details the four years Dougie Wallace spent documenting the now defunct black and yellow Premier Padmini cabs of Mumbai, famous for their garish, psychedelic interiors and the elusive charisma of the drivers. Wallace in order to produce this series of the city’s most iconic taxis, visited Bombay 17 times.
