Washing Strung Between Tenements, Dundee 1948 (printed 1989)

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
This photograph was taken in Dundee during the filming of a documentary ‘Scottish Universities’. It was a film about the foundation and growth of the four Scottish universities: St. Andrews, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh. A beautifully composed image, Suschitzky draws the viewer into the scene. The washing poles and lines heavy with clothes allow the eye to dance across the image. Gradually from the darker areas figures appear, the two girls in chatting in the foreground, the lone figure in the alley behind and the young boys gathered on a terrace at the right.
