Analogue by Tom Sheehan: Private View Recap

On the first Thursday of every month, the galleries and museums of East London open their doors late for a chance to see amazing art, culture, and events after hours. In November, after months of planning we finally launched the first solo exhibition by music photographer Tom Sheehan. We think it was well worth the wait. See how we got on and who we bumped into here.

Analogue by Tom Sheehan Private View

This exhibition had been planned way back in the summer so by the time November came around I was itching to tell everyone about the new show from Tom Sheehan. We got everything set up and were kindly given two big boxes of lager from the wonderful Saint Beer company.

The show had already attracted lots media with articles in The Quietus, Mojo, Q magazine, The Arts Desk and even a news flash on BBC6 Music.

The show opened at 6pm and by 6.45pm we were already at full capacity. I couldn’t open the beer bottles fast enough!

Everyone wanted to know more about the photographs and Tom spend lots of time talking through is work with people and explaining the techniques used.

At one point I started chatting with a guy called John who was a music producer. He told me he’d produced The Stone Roses XTC, The Fall and was responsible for The Bends by Radiohead. It wasn’t until the next day I realised that it was super famous producer John Leckie. EEK!

The night was such a great success and there wasn’t a drop of lager left!

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.

    Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.
