of absence and presence

In 1855, Duncan Brown, Janitor for the Glasgow School of Art and pioneering amateur photographer, took a photograph of five men and two boys in a garden . . .

This short film is based on that photograph.

Music credit: Amen [chorus) – Part III, MESSIAH, by Handel

The dawn chorus: at the beginning of this film was recorded many years ago outside Mossgrove.

Thanks, as ever: to John Berger.
