The Young Souls project arose when Dean was invited to submit photographic essay and a short film to 125 Magazine, the publication always revolves around a word and in this instance it was the interpretation of ‘Religion’. Dean explains ‘Immediately the phase “Keep the faith” came into my head, music never being far from my mind, I thought that this would be a great opportunity to explore and present a subject that is close to my heart. With the stills I didn’t want to recreate the past, but I did aim to produce timeless works that illustrate the culture as never before."

For those of you who know about the culture of Northern Soul you will not need any explaination however for those new to this fabulous scene you can start off by having a look at the wiki link here.

Vortigern Margate is a new photographic gallery and rare bookshop based in the Old Town of Margate in Kent, England. It represents a wide range of photographic artists and also stocks a carefully curated selection of mostly first edition rare and out of print photo-books and vintage magazines from the 1950's to the present day.

Vortigern Margate takes it's name from Margate's famous Vortigern caves and is the premiere destination in the south east of England for photographers and those who love the medium.

In the past Dean was invited to screen his award winning short film Young Souls at the Turner Contemporary Gallery so it is fitting that now Dean will present a selected edit of the original Young Souls exhibition in the Vortigern Gallery a fine new gallery also in Margate.

Vortigern opens Thursdays – Sundays 11am- 5pm click on the poster to link to the galleries website.
