Dougie Wallace, an East-London based photographer, grew up in Glasgow and is internationally recognised for his long-term social documentary projects.

Throughout each thematic project, Wallace’s expressive street photography carries a distinct direct and visually exaggerated style. With an eye for the ‘tragi-comic’ and uninhibited human behaviour, Wallace’s work is informed by societies trends and incongruities, translating & honing his observations into wit, criticism and humorous vignettes.

Wallace has published a series of books including… Stags, Hens & Bunnies, A Blackpool Story, 2014, Harrodsburg, 2016, Well Heeled, 2017, and most recently East Ended, which launched at Paris Photo in 2019. Harrodsburg tells a story of opulence, wealth and abundance which saw Wallace awarded with the inaugural 'Magnum Photography Award 2016'. In 2017, BBC4 TV broadcast a documentary as part of the series What Artists Do All Day. The programme follows Dougie on the streets of Knightsbridge as he completes the photographs for the Harrodsburg book.

Wallace has exhibited worldwide with both solo shows, joint exhibition and photography festivals, including; The Hospital Club, Paris Photo, Fabric, Spitalfields market and Format International Photography Festival.

Clients & features to date include… Louis Vuitton Supreme, GQ, NY Times, Olympus, Sky, The Guardian, ES Magazine and Vice.
