“The Gods” presents the first printed work by Scottish photographer Ivar Wigan. Selections are curated from his greater body of photographs of the same title.

Wigan documents scenes from underground hip-hop and street culture in the American South. Taken throughout multiple cities—predominately in Miami, Atlanta and New Orleans—the images are a defiant celebration of marginalized culture, suffered with a sense of admiration and empathy.

The title of the work dedicated to a term from the community, a ‘God’ is a veteran hustler—someone who has either survived the ‘streets’ and/or the complex maze of America’s prison system. This lionization of what might be considered a transgressive community is a central theme of Wigan’s work.
