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”

 

 

CUTS is available to buy here for £45.

Everything’s slowing down
Midweek 
10.32 a.m
No rush
The moment after taking this 
The log tumbled
It’s now in flame. 
The unimportant and superficial 
Appear real
Only nothing IS important 
The rain has started 
to make a noise on the roof.

Moved that he’s into sound n vision at 21,
I now remember T was too at that age.
I wonder what it will make of them.
Also funny to be shooting under Stockwell.

Ummm
Long time me no rub you in a dance
My note books full
I feel bloggin has lost its novelty value
And Dobedo feels like the warm fire 
at the back for my studio 
with a plentiful supply
And some time on my hands
Saturday 
Wanted to shoot the logs as an empty throne
But they’ve just collapsed a bit 
and don’t look convincing any more
I don’t feel like an Instagram person
Probably no longer in search of fame or fortune
Happy here with my fire
N
You

I bumped into more than half a dozen mates here at the station cafe this morning. What is this new moon going to tell me? The old moons last message was that getting nearer my truth takes me more detachment and commitment time than I imagine. At least 3 best 7 cycles. Months as opposed to weeks. Minutes instead of seconds. Years instead of months. Hours instead of minutes. Generations instead of a life time. Days instead of hours. Millennia instead of generations. Weeks instead of days.

SO HERE YOU GOGO the real deal an how you feel have a lot of people forgotten how to RIGHT DEAL & FEEL for themselves do I always need other points of reference to validate myself. are all artists art and human beings validated by others. i think so that is how we come into the world but sadly not always witnessed when we die.
