This exhibition takes a closer look at the link between artistic and creative endeavour in London from the early 1980s through to the emerging talent of 2013, proposing a single thread of creativity that can be traced back over the past thirty years.
Featuring the work of father and son DoBeDo contributors Mark and Tyrone Lebon, the project is formed around 50 custom-made vitrines, each curated by artists or proponents of a particular creative scene, showcasing material ranging from flyers, books, photographs, drawings and other paraphernalia.
Tshirt #005 of the exclusive ‘DoBeDo Photographer Series’ is by London based photographer, Mark Lebon.
Lebon established his reputation throughout the 80s and 90s working together with stylists Ray Petri and Judy Blame, creating fashion imagery that was highly influential and lead the way for the new wave of ‘grunge’ that emerged in the late 90s. Cited by David Sims as his greatest photographic influence, Lebon is currently working on his archive and teaching photography at the London College of Fashion.
Filmed during the recent photo shoot for i-D Magazine, this short film by Joe Ridout gives an insight into the 30+ year collaborative relationship between photographer Mark Lebon and stylist Judy Blame.
