Photographer Harry Papadopoulos takes a step back in time to explore the glamour and grit of the 1980s post punk music scene, in new exhibition What Presence!
Taking place at the McManus Art Gallery & Museum, Dundee, the new exhibition offers a glimpse behind the lens of one of Scotland’s most legendary music photographers, featuring the likes of Aztec Camera, The Birthday Party, The Specials and The Clash.
A self-taught photographer, Papadopoulos began his career by selling photographs to gig-goers outside the Apollo in the late 1970s. He later became a staff photographer for Sounds magazine where he captured a number of music stars on film: from Blondie to David Bowie, the Associates to Devo, by way of Joy Division, Bryan Ferry and Siouxsie and the Banshees. A cult figure on the music scene, Papadopoulos’ London flat became a second home to fellow Scots migrants such as Orange Juice, Aztec Camera, Josef K and The Bluebells.
What Presence! is a touring exhibition from the Streetlevel Photoworks in Glasgow, which was co-curated by singer from The Bluebells, Ken McCluskey. Taking place until Sunday 11th August, the exhibition will be accompanied by a series of talks, impromptu music events and workshops.

This spring, our men's Laurel Wreath Collection takes inspiration from the early 1980s British graphic art movement with an overall clean, modern and experimental approach. Key influences on the collection include artists such as Peter Saville and Malcolm Garrett, both famed for their seminal work with musicians and innovative approach to design - Saville famously created the iconic Unknown Pleasures album artwork for Joy Division whilst Garrett was one of the first artists to convert to digital techniques in the early 90s.

A two colour dot pattern evocative of early computer cards and an industrial dash print, both reminiscent of the pioneering graphics movement, bring depth to slim fit shirts and lightweight Italian knitwear.

Elsewhere in the collection, seams have been shifted, button-up pockets give way to unexpected colour pops and envelope collars add detail to simple styles. A toned down palette of steel greys, pastel green and soft pinks is punctuated with flashes of brights.
