It’s that time of year again when the Creative Review Photography Annual brings together and honours the finest photographic work produced in the last year and we are thrilled to announce that work from our very own, Dean Chalkley, will appear not once, not twice, but a total of three times!!!
The first image selected for publication is taken from a commercial project for Everything Everywhere, created by Figtree agency, to launch the new company formed by the Orange and T-mobile merger.

Even more exciting, the second and third pieces have been selected from Dean’s own personal project, Young Souls – a celebration of today’s Northern Soul club scene, currently enjoying a revival – and includes both a photograph and moving image entry. As quoted in Creative Review, ”The photographic aspect is a study focusing on the current burgeoning generation of young people getting into the scene, whereas the film brings the atmosphere and wonder of Northern Soul to life”.

Appearing in Empire’s October 2011 issue in only her third ever interview, Jessica Chastain is now already a shining star. Playing Terrence Malick’s spiritual mother in The Tree of Life, Shoot photographer, Adrian Green, wonderfully captures her natural beauty and grace.
Journalist Tom Hibbert, who died last week, was one of the most influential writers about music and a key figure in the development of the music press, in particular Smash Hits and Q, that we have known and loved since the 1980’s. He was witty and subtly subversive and a full time enemy of pomposity and phoneyness in all its guises. “Tom was the funniest, sharpest and most willfully eccentric person I ever worked with, probably ever met.” writes Paul Rider. “The news of his death last week is very, very sad. He had a very special talent that is sorely missed.”
Last chance this weekend to see Dean Chalkley’s amazing ‘New Faces’ at the Reading Museum, where it has been part of ‘Reading, Steady, Go’ a celebration of Sixties style and all things mod. The show, which previously ran for a month at London’s Book Club gallery is closing on Sunday 4 September. It’s a study of eight young ‘Modernists’ who, with their sharp suits and sharper dance moves, are the latest inheritors of the smart but cool ‘Mod’ tradition.
