Derek Ridgers – New Exhibition of Club Photography
The Museum of Club Culture in Hull is this week hosting an exhibition by legendary music and subculture photographer Derek Ridgers. Spanning 35 years Derek has been capturing the weird and wonderful characters from the early Punk days, through to the New Romantics in the eighties and the Fetish scene in the nineties.
Derek has also got another exhibition currently running in London. ‘Un/Seen’ compiles classic portraits and captures the unique quality each and every subject matter exudes. From a young Nick Cave to a classic Iggy Pop stage shot, these two exhibitions prove that Ridgers is one of the leading photographers documenting the music and club/street culture over the last thirty-five years.
The exhibition takes place at The Society Club, 12 Ingestre Place, Soho, London W1F 0JF and runs until the end of May
