This is a must see for any photographers, bands or people interested in Art in general...Click on the image to go to the Radio Times. Because it is on Sky the programme times are a little confusing but enough to say :

Good that the programme is repeated and also available 'On Demand'  here. Do check it out.

LBB Talk

As they say: 

SUNDAY 03 AUGUST 2014 // 1:30-3:30 // £10 // OVAL SPACE 29-32 THE OVAL, HACKNEY, LONDON, E2 9DT 

If you were to prise apart the heart of many cultural zeitgeist, you’d most likely find design, music and fashion as integral components.

There’s not always a logical and linear reason for why trends appear, but it is why culture remains such an interesting phenomena.

In collaboration with Fashion Sunday, LBB will host a live interview with ‘fashion-industry favourite’, creative director /  H by Harris founder Harris Elliott and prolific photographer / filmmaker for ‘music’s most wanted photographer’  Dean Chalkley — both cultural instigators in their own right.

The topic of conversation will be the pair’s recent visual arts collaboration:  The Return of the Rudeboy, currently exhibiting at Somerset House. The multimedia exhibition featuring photography, installation and events, showcases the sartorial subculture of the 21st century Rudeboy as well as the contributing culture that underpins the movement. From its roots of 50’s Kingston, Jamaica, 80’s Two-tone Britain to the contemporary take on Rudie style.

LBB is a great site check out their stuff here

During last week Channel 4 News presented a special news feature on the exhibition, Boya Dee came to ' Return of the Rudeboy' and talked to Dean and Harris about the show and the way it has captured the essence of what is happening NOW!... This great feature has some classic old footage and sets the scene very well for those less familiar with the history of Rudeboy culture.

Thousands upon thousands have now visited the exhibition and  it continues to excite and draw people from right across the spectrum from young to old. People are seeing the show as an important cultural barometer as well as appreciating the sartorial elegance and manner of the subjects in the pictures. The three dimensional objects and the extra events are adding even more experiential depth and the functioning Barbershop on a Thursday and Saturday is certainly proving popular too..So get along to the show if you can, it is on for a few more weeks but don't miss it..

Return of the Rudeboy is open to the public until 25th August 2014.

Free entry open 10am-6pm everyday (Last entry 5:30pm)
