David, who died last year aged 65, was involved in the early stages of planning the book and selected many of his favourite photographs to be included.

Trish Peat, David’s wife, said: “Sadly, David never saw the book, called An Eye on the World, but he had an idea what it would look like. He would be very pleased to know that it had come to fruition.

“David was a film director and his work took him all over the world and he took the opportunity to photograph people in places as diverse as Paris and Ecuador. These are the pictures that are in the book, which is David’s second.

“It includes 70-plus images which David had taken over 40 years. They show not only his skill at capturing the moment but often his great humour and compassion.” Trish said Helensburgh man David Bruce had been a great help in bringing the project to the publication stage. Since his death from cancer in April 2012, David’s family have been delighted by the continuing huge interest shown in his work.

His Retrospective Exhibition at Glasgow’s Street Level Gallery last summer was very successful and was voted one of the top exhibitions of 2012 by List magazine. This exhibition is moving to Edinburgh and opens at the Dovecot Studios in Infirmary Street, on Friday September 27 and runs for a month.

An Eye of the World will be launched to coincide with the opening of the exhibition and on the same day copies will go on sale at the Ardardan farm shop at Cardross.

The family were delighted when earlier this year the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh commissioned 40 of David’s Glasgow ‘68 portfolio. These, according to the curator, will be kept in the archive there for “500 years or more”. Many readers will have bought the book, An Eye on the Street, in which these prints appear.

David’s new hardback book, priced £20, is available at Ardardan or from Trish on 01436 820084.
