Under The Influence: John Deakin + The Lure Of Soho
Have a gander at one of the greatest postwar photographers
With John Deakin's ability to capture human moments perfectly it’s not hard to see why he's one of the greats. Soho in the ‘50s and early ‘60s was a hotbed for creative activity. Deakin captured the likes of Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and Dylan Thomas as well as the everyday faded glamour of Soho’s venues. A slice of pretty stylish and arresting history. General admission. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed. We need your card details to store the event information in "My Tickets", but rest assured, we won't charge you a penny.
"...the lives of his sitters in all their glamorous and grotesque contradictions pour out of these pictures."
