W’HAPPEN

Friday, August 31st, 2012
Originally published in 1998 and edited by Jason Evans, W’HAPPEN has been made available again by Antenne books . The content of this book, created by then up and coming photographers and stylists, echoed real life and took it’s aesthetic from documentary photography.  These young photographers (including Corinne Day, Nick Knight, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nigel Shafran, Elaine Constantine and more) and stylists took what the saw on the streets, in clubs and the world around them and used it to created a new wave of style for the 90s that had a DIY approach to photography and styling, and an unconventional choice of locations and models.

I bought a Warhol book in the charity shop in Peckham yesterday and it had these in which I had never seen before. I’d like one on a big white T shirt.

1980, USA

Bruce Davidson has an exhibition on in London at the moment, I don’t know if this series is in it but you should probably go nonetheless.

See Chris Beetles Fine Photographs Gallery for more information.

There is also a photo book by Bruce Davidson titled Subway, but I can’t afford it.

Seen: Black Style UK

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I picked up this book at the weekend and I really like the images in it, it is a comprehensive visual record of Black style in London from the past 50 or so years. I really like the fact that it focuses on a variety of different subcultures as well as events that we all know today such as Notting Hill Carnival (an amazing place to watch people try to outdo each other with the tightest shorts or the most intricate of hairstyles.) It even focuses on the garage scene of the late 90s, something I can relate to.
