A live music photography exhibition in two parts
at The Old Markett, Brighton
Open: weekdays 1:00 - 5:00pm and during public events, March - April 2015
When not at work as a psychiatrist, Greg has been taking photographs of live music on film since 1989. For Neate Photos, he brings two photography collections to the Old Market.
We All Look Good in Black & White features his best darkroom prints of original local musicians in Brighton and Glasgow. Taking it’s title from a lyric by Shrag - the sorely missed Sussex Heights Roving Artists Group who feature as the lead image - the sentiment appears tailor-made for Greg’s monochrome prints. Alongside dynamic local captures of Brighton-based musicians Sweet Williams, Crayola Lectern and Blood Red Shoes, the exhibition in the Old Market bar also features a selection of Glaswegian musicians who each represent the Scottish city’s endless creativity that continues to evolve. For Greg, that Glaswegian spirit is best represented by one-time Brighton resident, Jer Reid, who regularly collaborates with other musicians and dancers in one-off improvised performances.
In the Waterloo Room, Neate at ATP, is a collection of moments from over 10 years at All Tomorrow’s Parties, the curator led holiday camp festival that began at Camber Sands in Sussex. Last year, ATP invited Greg to prepare an exhibition to display at ATP Terminal, their pop-up shop in Shoreditch. Included in the exhibition is a collage that appeared in Careless Talk Costs Lives, the legendary magazine formed by the dynamic Melody Maker legends, Everett True and Steve Gullick. Neate at ATP has since been displayed at the 13th Note in Glasgow before coming full circle to Brighton, where a number of these photographs were first shown in 2006 at Get Cutie in the North Laine.
Neate Photos was framed by Brighton Framing Gallery. Colour printing by Colourstream.
