....And so to one of Fluid London's favourite bars, The Book Club in Shoreditch, for a night of Cocoa Caipirinhas, ping-pong and a curious preview of framed A-listers courtesy of Peter Anderson.
Anderson is a British photographer whose 'Then And There, Here and Now' exhibition will be on display at the Shoreditch hideaway until 26th September.
‘Then and There, Here and Now’ is a collection of black and white portraits created while Anderson was working in-house at NME in the 1980’s. His subjects are an attractive assortment of musical icons and early hip-hop talent; including a pre-blonde Madonna and Mick Jagger buried among excitable groupies.
Anderson works closely with his subjects and opens a door to an era when music, fashion and politics first collided. Anderson’s giant photographic prints currently sell alongside Warhol, Basquiat and Banksy and his next project, ‘Here and Now’, capturing the local street style at the Arch Gallery in Deptford is sure to be a must-see.
