Vinyl imagery takes a spin at Photomonth 2011

About

Vinyl Replay is a unique photographic exploration of a record collection and is being held as part of Photomonth, East London's International photography festival. In the studio and on location, Constantine Gras has used long exposures, often with a camera in motion, to reinterpret his dusty and scratched vinyl records. These records range from 1966 Beach Boys up until his last days of active vinyl collecting from Mole Jazz in the early 1990”²s. Constantine re-invokes the space and time of this analogue existence: early days of collective family listening; rushing down to Woolworth's with pocket money to buy singles; the flowering of sexual identity in post-punk teens; and the outrage and civil disobedience against Thatcherite Britain. A short film and book launch will be held as part of the exhibition. Constantine Gras is a multi-media artist. He is working on an environmental project called Water - Way of Life which is a 2012 Cultural Olympiad project. He recently made his debut short film, Flood Light, as a commission for the InTRANSIT festival.
