His photographs of friends, acquaintances and night time scenes of the city are some of the most iconic of that time. The 1970s and 80s New York scene has been particularly influential on generations of Glasgow-based artists and these photographs give an international context to Glasgow's collections. This selection of 7 prints includes street portraits and images of downtown New York City at night. All works were printed by Hujar within his lifetime. This is the first time Hujars work has been acquired by a UK public collection. Presented by the Art Fund through Art Fund International.
