‘CUTS’ BOOK
21/09/2018
Book, News
[cft key=video]
DoBeDo is proud to announce the launch of Cuts; a joint publication between Gimme 5 and DoBeDo! 
 
CUTS is a 500 page book of portraits shot by Steve Brooks in the ‘90s and ’00s. Steve was the co-owner of ‘Cuts’ the cult London hairdressers founded by James Lebon in Kensington Market in 1978. These casual triptychs were displayed as enlarged 35mm black and white contact sheets in the window on the Soho shop, replaced only when the next roll was developed and then they were forgotten… until now! Recently rediscovered by Sarah Lewis, the director of ‘No Ifs Or Buts’, a 20-year-in-the-making documentary about Steve, James and Cuts – to be premiered at the London Film Festival in October. CUTS, the book, is a valuable record of the institution and it’s Soho clientele from a significant era in London’s cultural history.
 
Taken from foreword by Mark Lebon:
 
“steve might have dreamt of being a photographer, then now realised he was
we all are.
we just need to be
 
and perceive as we want to perceive ourselves
others.
 
action and being
responding and acceptance.
 
thank you for being you for doing you
for progress
and imperfection”

DoBeDo is pleased to announce the release of T-shirt #022 in the ‘DoBeDo Photographers Series’ – ‘Perennial Shadows’ by Tommy Malekoff. 

Malekoff is a New York based visual artist from North Carolina. The image on this shirt is taken from Perennial Shadows; a short film and collection of photographs about Kudzu; the invasive vine native to Japan that grows rampant in the American South. 

In this particular image, Kudzu has grown up a power pole in the shape of crucified Jesus, adding to the myth and regional symbolism that the vine has created. 

The T-shirt has a full colour digital print on the front, with a poem written in collaboration with the artist Project Pat printed on the back. The t-shirt includes a zine made by the artist which features a collection of cell phone photographs, found flyers, and writings. The contents of this publication exist as studies for an upcoming film project.
