Over the last year I have been asked to do quite a few shoots for the Jewish Museum in Camden, who have some fantastic exhibitions. I’ve been honoured that they’ve asked me back to photograph their private views.
The fantastic Jane Franklin who used to employ me to snap press-nights at Hampstead Theatre, after moving to the Jewish Museum asked me to document a show and talk called ‘Blood’ by Tom Piper (Tower of London poppies man). Since then I have documented ‘Through a Queer Lens: Portraits of LGBTQ Jews,’ Moses, Mods and Mr Fish: The Menswear Revolution – an insight into the history of men’s fashion from the dawn of Carnaby street to more recent. Next came Dorothy Bohm: Sixties London – captivating portraits and a talk about her life. She also gave me a signed copy of her book! And the last big exhibition was Jukebox, Jewkbox! A Century on Shellac and Vinyl – which was an astounding insight into music with an epic display of vinyl, accompanied by a huge lightbox diagonally spanning the room from end to end.
Above are some of my favourite pictures.
When I turned up to photograph a breakfast event last week. I pleased to see a large banner of one of the shots from the jukebox exhibition. It’s nice to see pictures used to entice new members. The new marketing material looks great.
