We recently came across the work of photographer George Plemper, whose A Moment in Time series captures British youth culture in the late 70s and early 80s. The documentary project is largely set around the estates and community centres of Woolwich and Thamesmead, with the photographer shooting hundreds of portraits of the young people he encountered day to day.

Speaking of the project, George mentions that he wasn't originally sure what to do with the images, admitting that his "negatives and photographs sat mouldering in the back of my garage for 30 years before the wonders of the digital age allowed me to rescue them." The series has received a brilliant response on photo-sharing site flickr, as well as being mentioned on several blogs.

The Chelsea Futurespace Gallery presents Four Decades, an exhibition of prints by iconic British artist and former Fred Perry collaborator Sir Peter Blake. Known as one of the figureheads of the British Pop Art movement, Blake’s work takes influence from the realms of pop culture, literature, music and contemporary art.

Included in the exhibition are Blake’s series of Appropriated Alphabets, Alice in Wonderland, and The Butterfly Man, as well as portraits of musicians Chuck Berry, Ian Dury and The Clash. Covering forty years of the artist’s work, the exhibition explores the diversity and dexterity that allows it to transcend the divisions between fine art and pop culture.
Four Decades will run at Chelsea Futurespace until 28th July, 2013.

Photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek will visit the Hyperlink Festival at London's Tate Modern this weekend, hosting two workshops alongside an open casting call to be a part of the duo's latest piece of work. Working as 'The Exactitudes' since 1994, Ari and Ellie have long been inspired by the dress codes adopted by various social groups, adopting an almost scientific approach to their archiving of street fashions.
The creative partners are one of the contributors to our 60 Year Anniversary Gallery, creating a unique customisation of our iconic Fred Perry shirt with multiple embroidered Laurel Wreaths on the chest. Join the duo at the Tate Modern this Saturday, to learn about their techniques and see a live portrait session with members of the public.
The Exactitudes photography workshops will take place this Sunday 28th April at the Clore Studio, Tate Modern, London. Find out more about the three day Hyperlink Festival here.
