DoBeDo is excited to announce the release of T-shirt #021 in the ‘DoBeDo Photographers Series’ – ‘Gasoline’ by David Campany.
David Campany is a London based writer, curator, and artist. The images for this T-shirt are taken from his book Gasoline; a collection of press photos of American gas stations published by MACK.
“A news photo of a woman waiting in line to fill her car with gasoline. It was the 1970s, the decade of global oil price instability. Today there are other instabilities. Will the oil run dry before the planet collapses? I bought the photo on eBay for $15. Now it’s a T-shirt.”
The T-shirt has a black and white print on the front, with the writing from the back of the original photograph printed on the back of the T-shirt. It also comes with a poster of a different image from the series.
Nigel Shafran has made a film called ‘Today Everyday’ about the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.
BBC Radio 4’s flagship news and current affairs programme Today is the most popular programme on Radio 4 – with over seven and a half million listeners a week. It was launched in late October 1957, and – as part of it’s sixtieth anniversary – Shafran has made a series of video portraits of the presenters; which are now on display at the National Portrait Gallery.
Filmed in and around the Today studio over three days in July 2017, John Humphrys, Sarah Montague, Mishal Husain, Nick Robinson and Justin Webb were questioned by Shafran about their daily lives.
Speaking about Today Everyday Shafran says “my thoughts were concerned with how the Today presenters bring world events into our homes, but what is of interest to me are the details of people’s lives, the day – to – day domestic, the personal, non-events often overlooked, which include details such as eating habits, shopping lists, relatives talked to, memories.”

DoBeDo is happy to announce the release of Tshirt #020 in the ‘DoBeDo Photographers Series’ – ‘Paintings’ by Harley Weir.
Paintings, an image from Weir’s new book of the same title – which is being published by Loose Joints – presents an image that digresses from the artist’s traditional photographic practice. Rather than confronting the concerns of trust, power and permission that weigh heavily upon her work produced for the fashion industry, Paintings shifts her attention onto the rhythm, colour and form of surfaces. This image, alongside the rest of the collection, is the result of consistent visual studies made by Weir throughout the past three years.
The Tshirt is embroidered on the front with Harley’s initials HVW and has a full colour print on the back.
It is also available to buy as a special package along with the book on the Loose Joints website.
