Peter Degnan | The Barras, Glasgow, 1970s-80s
Peter Degan is a self taught photographer living in Derby, England. He’s originally a native of Glasgow where he lived and worked for most of his life.

Peter: "My earliest recollection of photography is helping my dad develop films when I was a boy, which led to me becoming interested with the whole process of photography and creating and processing my own work from around the age of 15. The first camera I started off with a was a ‘Zenit E’ it was an SLR, and using this I learned a lot about the basics of the craft."

"The barras was a great place to photograph, always full over characters; enticements would include throwing free towels to the crowd and the patter was first class with exclamations such as: "Come in a bit closer to the stall missus, I don't dae mail order!."
