Scottish born photo-journalist Harry Benson arrived in America with the Beatles in 1964. Harry has photographed every U.S. President from Eisenhower to Donald Trump; was just feet away from Bobby Kennedy the night he was assassinated; in the room with Richard Nixon the night he resigned; on the Meredith March with Martin Luther King, Jr., next to Coretta Scott King at her husband's funeral; on manoeuvres with the IRS; was there when the Berlin Wall went up and when it came down; and covered the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans.

In this exhibition we bring together photographs from his native Glasgow alongside images created during an illustrious career in America.
