Happy new year everyone! We hope you all had chilled Christmas break. We’re pleased to announce that 1EYE will be working with Gavin Watson once again on an urban photo shoot around North London on Sunday 24th January. Gavin is from High Wycombe and is well known for his work on ‘Skins And Punks’ documenting their subcultures during the 80s. These photos gave inspiration to the well known British skinhead film ‘This Is England’. The Director Shane Meadows gave the following comment on Gavin’s work:
“What makes Gavin’s photos so special is that when you look at them, there’s clear trust from the subject towards the photographer so it feels like you’re in the photo rather than just observing.”
Gavin last photoed the band in 2012 around Birmingham producing a fine collection of images we’re all still proud of. Locations included near St Paul’s Square, around The Jewellery Quarter and The Diskery, Birmingham’s oldest record shop. You can view Gavin’s 1EYE album here on our Facebook page.
We’re looking forward to Gavin showing us round his turf and his select locations. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website gallery for the new album. Much love
