About

MMX Gallery is delighted to be showing a selection of Brian Griffin’s early work from the 1970s and 1980s. Exhibited prints will include images from his books Moscow, 1974; Copyright, 1978; Power, 1981 and Work, 1988.

Inspired by fine art movements; from Renaissance to Symbolism, Expressionism and Surrealism film and literature, Griffin began his career taking corporate portraits for Management Today Magazine in the early 1970s, the magazine that took the publishing world by storm, combining hard-hitting editorial with innovative design. Growing up and working in the Industrial Midlands of England, this influenced Griffin to define his aesthetic and install real emotions and character to the people in front of his camera, setting scenes and forging his own imaginative and unique visual language.

Drawing on his extensive back catalogue, MMX Gallery will be exhibiting over thirty prints that have been rarely seen in London for decades.

Most of the works on show are Vintage Silver Gelatin or Vintage Silver Bromide prints and all for sale. There will also be signed copies of Copyright 1978, the first self-published photo book in the UK, published by the man himself; Brian Griffin.
