Ken Russell’s Girls Will Be Boys, Boys Will Be Girls

Ken Russell was a notorious film-maker, for the big and the small screen. He always delivered surprises. He is mainly remembered for his exuberant, extravagant, excessive films. But that was later. And that sometimes tends to obscure the talent, technique and originality of his work. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to see some of his early work, his exploration of teddy girls photographed in the east end of London: Girls Will Be Boys, Boys Will Be Girls. The exhibition also features work by the less well-known Alan Vines.

Malcolm Glover’s India

People fall in love with different countries – India and Africa, particularly, engender powerful emotions. India has certainly got under the skin of photographer Malcolm Glover. He has been visiting the country for over ten years, partly to escape the English winter but more for the sheer joy of that chaotic, colourful, teeming country, the spirit of  which he has captured in his distinctive photographs. Those images now make up a solo exhibition at A Wave of Dreams in St Leonards. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths stepped in to Glover’s soulful interpetation of that extraordinary place.
