    Follow the #asif process on our Tumblr

    Over the next two weeks Nick Knight will be posting up on the SHOWstudio Tumblr all the steps he is taking with Simon Foxton on their #asif shoot.

    'This time we are excited by the notions of copyright and ownership, new realities, screen language, new imagery, high density decoration, latent image and fashion film. How those desires come together in a new coherent and exciting way is the journey I am about to start.'

    As they continue to shoot whilst being live streamed this weekend we share with you the incredible garments from the latest collections including Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Craig Green and Hood By Air - to name just a few - being styled by Simon Foxton.

    25 present 'Persona'

    For their third issue 25 Magazine, the exclusive biannual edited by SHOWstudio contributor Anja Rubik, has taken on the theme of 'narcissism'. Amongst contributions from talents such as Inez & Vinoodh, Hedi Slimane and Eniko, the publication also commissioned a fashion film by NYC based fimmaker Gordon von Steiner. He explores the issue's theme of 'narcissim' with the help of his starring lady Edita Vilkevičiūtė who comfortably plays the part of the female protagonist. The result is a surreal, haunting portrayal of female strength and beauty, captured delicately in Von Steiner's film Persona, presented exclusively on SHOWstudio. Watch it now!

    Ray Stevenson on the Bromley Contingent

    In the latest Punk: Photography interview, Ray Stevenson spoke to Nick Knight about his photograph of three members of the notorious Bromley Contingent - Siouxsie Sioux, Steven Severin and Debbie Juvenile at a Sex Pistols concert at the Screen on the Green. The group came to form bands such as Siouxsie and the Banshees and Generation X. Stevenson recalled the circumstances surrounding the shot, and shared his opinion of his subjects.

    'Trapped in Bromley, all the houses are the same, everybody's going to those schools in those uniforms, so the rebellion is just to be different and kind of shock the neighbours, who aren't really worth shocking in the first place. Sticking your tits out in the street would be quite an example of that.'

    Listen to Stevenson's punk memories now!

    The Photography of Punk closes Friday
    Final Week of the Exhibition

    It's your final chance to see our current exhibition at SHOWstudio Shop, The Photography of Punk. Closing on 22 November, the show sets out to debunk the caricature of punk and trace the images and objects that honed its legacy. Focusing specifically on fine art and reportage photography, the show compiles a series of images that capture both this explosive moment, and the various elements that informed it.

    Bruno Barbey's iconic shot of the 1968 student riots in Paris is one of the central photographs of the show. Inspired by the writings of Guy Debord's Situationists and their assertion that the misery of social alienation and commodity fetishism had spread itself into all aspects of every day life, the students instigated a volatile series of demonstrations that lead to a nation wide general strike. Both their actions and the Situationists' engagement with the idea of the 'spectacle' were crucial in the establishment of punk values and its aesthetic. In this striking composition the spirit of insurrection is almost palpable. One figure hurls a rock while another swings a bat; the image captures a moment that has descended into chaos and rebellion.

    It is this spirit that is so present in the selection of images displayed in the exhibition. From Bob Gruen's shot of Sid Vicious with the words 'GIVE ME A FIX' scratched into his chest and covered in blood during a gig in Dallas on the Sex Pistols' American tour to Jonh Ingham's photograph of a frantic performance by The Clash during their Night of Treason gig at the RCA, the imagery captures the energy the punks embodied. Soo Catwoman's cat attire and fierce stare down Ray Stevenson's lens, and the latex bondage garb worn by Siouxsie Sioux also reveal the important role of fashion in creating a visual language to deliberately shock and outrage.

    From the scandalous and aggressive to the experimental and politically confrontational, the exhibition showcases the many facets of a movement that went on the infiltrate nearly all aspects of life and culture. View important works by Jim French, Jon Savage, Robert Mapplethorpe and more before the show closes on Friday.

    Maison Martin Margiela to curate upcoming SHOWstudio exhibition!

    Maison Martin Margiela will collaborate with SHOWstudio on an upcoming exhibition at 19 Motcomb Street. The show is centred around memory. It explores the pivotal role of scent in triggering reminiscence and features Margiela's Replica range of fragrances. Opening 28 November, Margiela and SHOWstudio have created an installation to examine this olfactory manner of recollection.

    As part of the exhibition, a collection of illustrators have been asked to create an original drawing that depicts a personal memory prompted by one of the Replica perfumes. In true Margiela style, each memory drawing will be concealed in a custom made, white box and will only be revealed when visitors peer inside, or interact with the exhibition online. Accompanying the drawings will be a perfume bar to sample the scents, and a selection of haute couture pieces and objects from Line 13 associated with the concept of memory.


    The illustrators participating in the project include Richard Gray, Piet Paris, Cathrine Raben Davidsen, Laura Laine, Claire Barrow, Tobie Giddio, Valerie Servais, Kukula, Rei Nadal, Tara Dougans, Amelie Hegardt, Helen Bullock, Fiona Gourlay, Stephen Doherty, Jowy Maasdamme, Josie Hall, Conrad Roset, Quentin Jones.

    Peter Vernon on the Sex Pistols in Soho

    Nick Knight called Peter Vernon to ask him about his iconic shot of the Sex Pistols in the latest of our Punk: Photography interviews. The photographer recalls taking his much reproduced shot of the the original line up of the Sex Pistols, which became one of the defining images of punk the day it ended up on the front page of the Daily Mirror. Vernon describes the brief process of taking his 'one off'  photograph at the EMI studios in Soho, and knowing in the moment how strong it was. 'I knew I'd got something, but when I saw it I thought, great, that's just what we want!'. Listen to the full story behind the iconic photograph!

    Jim French's Polaroids
    Featured Shop Product!

    These rare polaroids by Jim French are an integral part of SHOWstudio's The Photography of Punk exhibition. They served as studies for French's Longhorns series of drawings which depict homoerotic images of cowboys. One of these sketches was appropriated by Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood for their notorious Nude Cowboys seditionaries tshirts. The garments provoked intense controversy at the time, with many of the wearers being arrested for indecent display. French, in LA, was completely unaware that his art work had been used in this way, and McLaren, having taken them from a catalogue authored with French's pseudonym 'Rip Colt', did not know of the artist responsible. In the coming years, the drawings were often incorrectly attributed to Tom of Finland, who also took up a similar subject matter but whose style is markedly different from French's and the authorship is not widely recognised. 

    SHOWstudio has told this story within the Photography of Punk exhibition by displaying both artists' works alongside each other as well as Dennis Morris' iconic shot of Sid Vicious wearing the t-shirt. All can be seen at our London gallery on 19 Motcomb Street until 22nd November. Visit us to see these elements of the punk movement, or purchase the polaroids here now.
