The latest independent publication from Chris Brickley, The Inner Circle is an introduction to the work of talented photographer Graham Gavin.
This joyous selection of images reveals tight-knit and interlinked circles of young creatives in the distant Glasgow of the 1990s. A world of dole queue courses and signing-on, dog-eared flats and elegant terraces. A world of bands and line-ups and pulsating, energised music venues. Artists, photographers, DJs, industry fixers.
A world of cafes, alleyways and parks. Of subway and markets, of posing and watching. A way of ‘being’ that we’ll all recognise, and wish for a moment that we’d been there. Perhaps you were. The photographs in this book are fresh, natural, life-affirming, warm. Everything that’s best in the city.
With a poignant introduction by Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), and written contributions from John McKeown, Alan Dimmick, Jane Egypt, Marc Baines, Sci-Fi Steven and P6. Featured artists include Lungleg, Yummy Fur, Bis, Dog Faced Hermans, Dawson and more, as well as PJ Harvey, Bikini Kill and Stereolab.
