From ballet to industrial photography

It seems bizarre that as the years roll by the 1960s that so many remember vividly are falling into the depths of Another Time. Black and white, gritty reportage was printed as regualr features in newspapers and magazines. When you see those photographs now, it is history reaching out: in the faces; the clothes; hair styles; buildings – and especially  the gritty images of industry in the north which have now disappeared into the mists of time. Colin Jones was one of the photographers documenting those eras. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to see his early images at Lucy Bell’s Gallery.

Rock Icons

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, The Who and Jimi Hendrix are all temporarily residing on Norman Road.  Icons now, they weren’t back in the 1960s, as they started off on their strasophere-defying career paths.  But icons need images and images need photographers -and these photographers were contemporaries of their subjects; friends, hanging out, taking photos, up close and personal. And as the rock scene took off, the artists’ images were in great demand – and still are.   HOT reporter Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to remind herself of those days and these, now, Rock Icons – the photographers and the rock stars.
