‘INSIDE THE BUM’ BOOK BY FRANK AND TYRONE LEBON
25/03/2019
News

DoBeDo presents ‘Inside the Bum’ – a book and film by Frank & Tyrone Lebon. The 106 page limited-edition photo book documents the making of Harmony Korine’s new film ‘The Beach Bum’ – starring Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Isla Fisher, Snoop Dogg, and Zac Efron.

In October of 2017 the Lebon brothers, Frank and Tyrone, were invited onto the set of Harmony Korine’s latest film, ‘The Beach Bum’ for a period of six weeks. Given the freedom to wander the set as they pleased, the Lebons received unrestricted access and a privileged insight into the filmmaking process of Korine – a long time inspiration for both brothers.

They came home with thousands of photographs and 50+ hours of footage which has been edited down over the course of the intervening year, and has resulted in two distinct pieces of collaborative work – a twenty-minute film and a limited-edition photographic book titled Inside the Bum. This is the first collaboration of this scale between the two brothers, and their first collaboration with Harmony Korine.

The book is a compilation of photographs, video stills, written diary entries, call sheets, and vintage Florida tourist paraphernalia taped together into a scrap book of sorts; part on-set documentary photography, part notebook of thoughts, questions and anecdotes for their film. Korine’s colourful set provided a bountiful stream of wild and wacky scenarios to document, from naked hobos destroying Miami-mansions to Moondog (McConaughey) setting boats on fire and dancing in tinfoil underwear. The mayhem of the set is balanced with the brothers’ delicate care for and interest in Korine’s craft and philosophies; evident in the quieter portraits and reflective notes scattered throughout the book.

Similarly to the book, the film is a chaotic collage of video footage, audio snippets, interviews, music and animated imagery that takes you on a rampant journey through the making of ‘The Beach Bum’. The Lebon brothers capture and mirror the poetic and chaos-embracing creative process and world that Korine himself employs in the making of his films. ‘Inside the Bum’ is both a reflection of and on Korine’s approach to filmmaking and to life itself, “The thing is, I chase the real life. You almost decide beforehand that you’re gonna go with the energy. I try to grab the energy, follow the energy. FOLLOW THE ENERGY!”

The book is available for pre-order here for £35

The film will be released online later in 2019 as part of Reely and Truly; a series of documentary portrait films about photographers produced by DoBeDo.

‘ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE’ EXHIBITION BY HANNA MOON AND JOYCE NG, LONDON
16/01/2019
Exhibition, News
DoBeDo is excited to announce English as a Second Languagethe exhibition of DoBeDo contributor Hanna Moon and Joyce Ng. Both photographers have created a new series of work responding directly to the history of Somerset House.

 

Bringing distinct Asian perspectives to their work, they reflect upon the power fashion photography holds in shaping our perceptions of beauty, style and taste. Ng draws inspiration from the renowned sixteenth century Chinese novel ‘Journey to the West’ to create images which feel both familiar, yet surreal. Moon presents a dramatic reimagining of Somerset House’s neoclassical setting; photographing in the dark of night, rebelliously ‘invading’ the site to create a series of intimate works of her two female muses that reflect her personal experiences living in UK.

Exhibition, News
DoBeDo is pleased to announce the opening of Now & Then, Dick Jewell’s most significant solo exhibition in recent years. 

Jewell’s re-purposing and representation of images is varied and impressive; Now & Then brings together a range of works produced across a 30-year period, and provides an opportunity to see developments manifested over time. 

Through film, photographs and photo-collages Now & Then chronicles his progression of observations across shifting technological and media perspectives; also in regards to people, as demonstrated by Jewell re-visiting his seminal 1989 film Headcases, whereby he has repeated the same set of questions to the same subjects 30 years on, in his latest film Head2Head.

HUGO SCOTT – ’20 PHOTOGRAPHS’
16/01/2019
Events, News

DoBeDo is proud to announce the release of its latest publication ‘Hugo Scott – 20 Photographs’.

’20 Photographs’ is a selection of Hugo Scott’s portraiture shot over the last eight years. Regularly travelling to different countries for his day-job, Scott started taking portraits during his down time, photographing people in the places he found himself as a way to interact with and experience unfamiliar situations. As his hobby grew into his main occupation, he began travelling specifically to photograph – this photo box includes photographs taken in Romania, South Africa, Cuba, Spain, France and all across USA.

The edit of 20 standalone images is an introduction to Scott’s extensive portraiture practice, made from an original edit of 5000; a taster of the large-scale ongoing projects that are not yet fully realised, and a first window into the breadth and exciting depth of the photographic practice of Hugo Scott.

This publication includes 20 card-mounted photographs with a signed and hand numbered index page, held in a hand finished box. It is a limited edition of only 150 hand made copies.

’20 Photographs’ is available to buy here

News

DoBeDo is excited to announce its release of T-shirt #023 in the ‘DoBeDo Photographers Series’ – ‘The Road to Tepeyac’ by Alinka Echeverría.

Echeverría is a Mexican-British artist, working in film and photography. The image for this T-shirt is taken from ‘The Road to Tepeyac’; conceptualised as an immersive photographic installation, The Road to Tepeyac consists of 125 images of devout Mexican pilgrims carrying their personal image of the Virgin of Guadalupe on the anniversary of her apparition in 1531.

“What is the connection between seeing and believing? What is it that makes us need images, crave images in order to feel a connection to the divine?”

The T-shirt includes a 6-set postcard pack, with different images from the series, and a printed insert with the story of the Virgin of Guadalupe. “The Road to Tepeyac” is embroided in white cotton braille on the front, with a colour print of a pilgrim on the back.

This T-shirt can be purchased here (at a discount) as part of the DoBeDo Photographers Series T-shirt Subscription. It is also available to buy here as a one off purchase
