Time is the theme of the new issue of 125 Magazine and Gavin Watson‘s 14 page story ‘Neville’ reunites him with his brother, the model/muse of his teenage years. This is the first time the pair have worked together as artist and subject for many years and it serves to highlight the changes time has wrought on them.
When 125 asked Gavin what was the biggest difference he cited the difficulty in persuading Neville, now an internationally renowned DJ, to participate.
Gavin explains, ‘Previously, he was at ease in front of the camera but Nev didn’t want to look like the person he was at that young age. He wanted his evolved personality to show through. He’s very different man today.’
But in spite of Neville’ initial doubts, the piece, centred on the sharp but simple idea of contrasting images of past and present, works brilliantly. It is evocative and grittily tender as it explores the interplay of constancy and change.
