Adrian Boot: PUNKULTURE
Ricochet through punk history with the British photographer who actually lived it.
April 04, 2016
British photographer Adrian Boot has seen a lot more than your Average Joe. Starting his incredible career photographing for some of Britain's most popular publications (NME, The Times and The Guardian to name a few), he's made a name for himself as one of the UK's best-known music photographers. His work has varied from working with Nelson Mandela and Bob Marley, to documenting the efforts of Greenpeace in the Soviet Union. He also taught physics in Jamaica for a period in the 1970's, because you know, why the hell not?
Come April, 62 of his photographs documenting the notorious punk music revolution are gracing the walls of SunStudios, Alexandria. Taking a behind-the-scenes look at punk music, the exhibition lays bare the culture and attitudes that incited the punk music revolution in Britain and all over the world. Boot's camera lens has focused on some of the greats that stormed into the '70s music scene and left an imprint on music to come, from The Sex Pistols to Ramones to Blondie — all held together with safety pins, pointy mohawks and stovepipes.
