Punk Weekender features Shirley Baker

posted in: News | 0

We are delighted that The Photographers’ Gallery have included some of Shirley Bakers Punk photographs in their Punk Weekender exhibition. These works were taken in London and Stockport, Cheshire, in the early 1980s and the original prints will be on sale at the gallery. The exhibition is open from 23 June, and the prints will be on show in the print shop for a month. These pictures reveal a different aspect to Shirley’s work. Alongside black and white prints, the display contains rare colour portraits, which capture the provocative style and attitude of punk youth culture and offer a glimpse into the vibrant and dynamic nature of various punk cliques.
