A photographic retrospective of the history of club culture
From northern soul and disco to house and hip hop, through jungle and garage and right down to grime, club culture has come a long way, baby. Opening next week at The Printspace gallery on Kingsland Road, Lost In Music is a massive new photography exhibition that tells the story of dance music across the decades and around the world, and pays tribute to the DJs and dancers who made it all happen. Beginning in the ’70s and running right through to the present day, Lost In Music includes a staggering 500 photos. Contributors include professional photographers including Derek Ridgers, DJ and snapper Gavin Mills, Dean Chalkley, Kevin Cummins, Normski and Dave Swindells. Plus, there’s also a major chunk of the exhibition devoted to the "I was there" crew: thousands of amateur photographers and party people from around the world, who responded to an open call with 50,000 pictures. The very best have made the final show.
"This is the story of a banging night out, told over 500 pictures and 40 years."
