'POP' / BRIAN GRIFFIN

Ten years from the late 1970's until the late 1980's Brian was one of the photographers record companies, band managers and groups approached to do their album covers, single bags and publicity. For many photo-shoots they would journey into the dark hinterland of London's Docklands, a warren of litter strewn streets left to rot after the closure of the docks to his studio. Featured in this exhibition are both studio and location images from Brian’s personal collection, some of them rare vintage prints, all captured prior to the digital age, when you needed to be technically proficient and inventive as a photographer, whether it was twanging nicker elastic to create shafts of light or producing an album cover front, back plus inner sleeve for less than a pound.
