'Living in Shoreditch has helped me develop an eye for the tragi-comic, messy side of uninhibited human behaviour. My Glasgow upbringing has shaped my style, which has been described as 'visually exaggerated' and 'hard edged'.
'What motivates my pictures is human behaviour. People’s interactions and emotions fascinate me. My stories are thematic; they have similarities of expressions running through them. My work is informed by societies trends and incongruities and translating what I see into wit, criticism and humorous vignettes. I’d like to think that my photos convey a point of view that believable and absurd.'
Dougie Wallace’s has had a number of solo shows worldwide as well as taken part in joint exhibits and photographic festivals around the globe. His work has been featured in assignments and publications for magazines and newspapers, including, The Sunday Times Magazine, D Repubblica, Le Monde, NYTimes, Stern, The Guardian, The Independent, Observer, International New York Times, GQ, Dazed, Vice, BBC, CNN, Itsnicethat, Die Zeit, Süddeutsche Zeitung, El País, Der Spiegel, Macleans, NZZ, Die Tageszeitung, Neon, dS Magazine - De Standaard.
