Unseen 'Southend’s Underground' Junk Club images will be presented in Buenos Aires.
Between 8th-27th April 2016 at Centro Cultural Borges, Sala Berni, Viamonte Esquina San Martin, Capital Federal, in Argentina.
HIGHLIGHTS is about to shake up Buenos Aires, the organisers of the photographic exhibition are a team of four internationally renowned photographers: Matthias Hombauer (Austria), Matias Altbach (Argentina), Dana Distortion (USA), and Javier Bragado (Spain). Their plan is to hold a dynamic and exciting exhibition that focuses on music photography as well as looking for ways of spreading the passion for music photography to people everywhere. Matias’s Home town is the first stop for what they hope will be a project that rolls on into the future and takes in several global cities.
Matias and Matthias approached Dean and asked if he would be a guest exhibitor and present a number of his images at the Highlights show as well. Dean has sent a unique collection of unseen images that will be on show in separate room at the Centro Cultural Borges.
This exclusive edit will be an unseen set of images celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Southend’s Underground. Originally shot in 2006 they feature the notorious Saturday night Southend hang out ‘Junk Club’, a small highly charged club night that took place in the basement of the Royal Hotel in Southend-on-Sea Essex. The scene that incubated here was dramatic both in styles and sounds, a hedonistic haunt for wild youth. At it’s core bands like The Horrors and These New Puritans and their friends let rip. These images will be a surprise, so for that reason they will not be included in the social media campaign for Highlights just yet.
More about this exhibition in the coming weeks but if you are anywhere near Argentina in April you must check it out once it's on.
