Long Live Southbank Book
October 6th, 2014

Long Live Southbank Book Cover

Long Live Southbank Bookllsb.com

Selected page spreads of my pictures featured in the Long Live Southbank book. The book is a celebration of the history and culture of the Undercroft and the campaign to save it.

Over 400 pages of essays, pictures and illustrations. From the history of the site and it’s architecture to the present day all wrapped up in four decades of skateboarding history.

The contributors list is long and impressive. A who’s who of British skateboarding. Two of the many things that stand out for me are Chris Steele-Perkins ‘Cardboard City’ pictures of the homeless in the walkways, undercrofts and underpasses of the Southbank and Waterloo. Plus a brilliant essay by Iain Borden on the architecture of the site. And that’s just scratching at the surface of this book.

You can order a copy via the LLSB shop.

The Print Room Exhibition

The Print Room Exhibitiontheprintroomkl.com

One of my 90s New Jersey prints will be on show at The Print Room in Malaysia next month for the Up Your Alley street photography exhibition. The show opens on the 6 September and runs until the 19 October 2014. A selection of my zines and my new book Millbank and that Van will also be on sale.

“The Print Room’s next exhibition “Up Your Alley” focuses on street photography, which is arguably one of the most practised but much-debated genres of photography. What exactly constitutes “street photography”? Does it document the daily heartbeat of a particular place? Does a photographer’s interaction with the people in front of the lens compromise the image in any way? Can a photograph be considered an example of street photography if it only captures the physical space, without the people who live there?

“These were some of the questions that the photographers involved in this exhibition grappled with as they trawled different corners of their respective cities at all hours of the day and night. We will be showing various works from professional and emerging photographers, as well as some of the students of the The Print Room, all of whom have shot in a vast range of styles in locations such as England, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Bangladesh and Switzerland.”

Here is the full, raw and unedited audio of the talk I did on Larry Clark at the The Photographers’ Gallery in July. The talk was about one of my favourite pictures from Clark’s book The Perfect Childhood and it’s influence on me and my work.

Huge thanks to Oliver Whitehead and the gallery for asking me to do this. Plus a special thanks to Andrew Youngson for the pictures of the event.
