This project has spread over four years and has necessitated Roddy going out, countless times, on the streets of Glasgow’s east end, approaching gangs of teenagers, asking to photograph them and their baseball caps. In one sense the images from these projects are merely the record of the process of investigation, the journey. This is significant in many of his works. There also seems to be a desire in this process to put himself in uncomfortable or challenging circumstances while making work. Making himself vulnerable.
