What Presence! The Rock Photography of Harry Papadopoulos
19 October 2018 until 28 October 2018
In a swift shutter’s click, Papadopoulos captured an era when the sound of Scotland echoed out across Britain and the world. For bands such as Aztec Camera, Orange Juice and The Bluebells it was he who defined their striking image. As a staff photographer with Sounds magazine, Harry worked with every Scots band that emerged during the early 1980s and over a five year period, his photographs covered the wider post-punk waterfront, from Blondie to David Bowie; the Associates to Devo by way of New Order, The Birthday Party, The Cramps, The Clash, Altered Images, Felt, and Suicide.
Several of these photo’s appear in this exhibition at Das Giftraum, embracing some of the Scottish acts as well as several other shots of pre-and-post punk peers.
A concurrent exhibition takes place at the same time as part of Dumfries Music Festival,18th -27th October: https://bit.ly/2yqyH9f
