Join us on Friday 6th October, 6pm - 9pm, for the launch of our latest exhibition, 'Young Love' by Ewen Spencer, to coincide with the release of the new book published by Stanley Barker. Ewen will be signing copies of the book on the night.
In the year 2000, Spencer was commissioned by Graham Rounthwaite at British music, fashion and culture magazine The Face to create a series focusing on youth clubs across the United Kingdom. From Cornwall to Lancashire, Spencer photographed teens goers as they drank, danced and fell in and out of love and lust.
“Today we stay younger longer and become grown up sooner. The successes of making any sort of story around youth is to recognise that we’ve all been there at sometime in our lives. Being a Teenager is life a concentrated moment of the human condition - all of the successes and pitfalls all being played out in one messy drama.” - Ewen Spencer
See you there!
