The Castlemilk Lads

About this artwork

The 'Castlemilk Lads' is one of Marzaroli's best known photographs. Shot on one of the growing housing estates on the outskirts of Glasgow during the 1950s, it speaks of a city altered by town planners beyond all recognition. The provocative stare of three of the boys and the angst of the one looking away, give us a clear idea about the unfriendly environment which they inhabit.
