Dance music has become one of the most defining global sounds of the past twenty years. Its energy, and those responsible for creating this world-wide phenomenon, have been captured in a new exhibition in conjunction with Beautiful Crime and Eddie Lock, brenowned photographer Jessica van der Weert presents: ‘FlipSide’.
Over the course of two years, 28 worldclass DJs and producers have allowed Jessica exclusionary access into their homes and private lives: the Flipside, capturing the artists away from the radio decks and studio spaces for which they are so commonly and comfortably associated with.
From Paul Oakenfold mowing the pitch at his beloved Chelsea Football Club, to Carl Cox doing burn-outs in his classic Lotus and Radio 1 DJ Danny Howard sitting in an armchair outside Coronation Street’s Rovers Return pub, to Boy George dressed in full army combat gear re-enacting scenes from Platoon, van der Weert’s images are a cause for marvel and amusement as a truly unique body of work.
All the images will be available to buy as originals and limited edition fine art photographic C-type prints in 3 sizes, all signed by Jess van der Weert. The exhibit will also raise funds and awareness for The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) – a debilitating condition that affects almost 10% of UK adults. Tinnitus has no cure, and the BTA relies solely on public donations to fund its research.
Flipside opens to the public 27th February until 4th March
