Exemplar: Joy Division

British photographer Kevin Cummins has photographed numerous musicians throughout his career. His ongoing exhibition showcases his photographs of the English rock band, Joy Division. Learn more after the break.

Kevin Cummins was still a budding photographer when he took photos of the iconic English band Joy Division between 1977 and 1980. Cummins was there on the band’s first gig until the band frontman’s death in 1980. During his time with the band, he was able to capture intimate moments on film – from backstage scenes to stage performances. Now we get to see a glimpse of the band together through a Proud Camden exhibit entitled Exemplar: Joy Division.

    I agree with you all, one of the most influential bands in British Rock history. A great band and a tragic story.

    I recommend the movie 'Control' from Anton Corbijn! "A profile of Ian Curtis, the enigmatic singer of Joy Division whose personal, professional, and romantic troubles led him to commit suicide at the age of 23."
