As the sun shines through the windows at the Glasgow Print Studio, a salmon leaps. You have to squint to see it, partly because at real retlection, partly because Henry Kerr's photographs blurr with action and burst with light. This glimpse from his series ‘Diana and The Salmon of Knowledge’ has been included in a group show of seven young photographers, selected and joined by Thomas Joshua Cooper of Glasgow School ot Art and veteran Glasgow photographer and iilm-maker Oscar Marzaroli.
It's a cosy gathering, inlonnal and personal — like meeting people at a party. Two documentary photographers are introduced at the door. Alan Knight’s dark contrasts cast a rather traditional eye over Fez, Alexandria andthe Necropolis, while John Gilmour focuses on shape and ambiguity— houses as laces.

hairlill Oladela Bamgboye's sensual portraits. His work is proof that in the right hands the camera can caress a body as well as copy it. Without trickery or artilice Bamgboye creates a classic, tactile beauty.
Psychology enters in Vaughan
Judge’s clean-cut portraits. In one,
three generations of women are physically separated — by a table, by dividing lines and by photography itself as the little girl hangs over mother and grandmother in a doting portrait. But though the pattern is broken visually, the bond between the women is indestructable.
Mary Cooper’s deserted rooms are
‘ interior landscapes with props, usually
tables and papers. Theatrical rather than social, they cry out to be larger. Apart from Jean Baird’s peaches and iron collage which seem out of place, this is a many-textured black and white exhibition. (Alice Bain)
