‘NOW AND THEN EXHIBITION’ BY DICK JEWELL, NOTTINGHAM
16/01/2019
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

NEW DOBEDO PHOTOGRAPHERS SERIES TSHIRT #023 BY ALINKA ECHEVERRIA £35
16/01/2019
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

‘CUTS’ BOOK
21/09/2018
Book, News
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”
