Amit and Naroop‘s Singh project is currently gracing the hallowed halls of Leo Burnett London.

Amit and Naroop launched The Singh Project in Autumn 2014 and it immediately caught the attention of the public and the press.  It was covered by BBC World News, The Huffington Post, The Guardian and The Hindustani Times to name but a few.  It is part of a wider change that is taking place in the way Sikhs are being perceived as Lauren Cochrane commented in The Guardian.

‘Including a sword-wielding man in his sixties, a smiling boy, a polo player and finger-clicking magician, the male Sikh subjects of The Singh Project are wildly different but they are also united by the signifiers of the religion – the turban. Photographers Amit and Naroop’s exhibition at the Framers Gallery also shows how the look now has a place on fashion’s radar. Dapper young Sikh men in sharp suits are now a mainstay of mainstream street style blogs and Sikh jewellery designer Waris Ahluwalia something of a figurehead starring in Gap adverts and Wes Anderson films.

Sikhs themselves are behind the shift. Along with Amit and Naroop, Pardeep Bahra, the 23-year-old fashion blogger – and Sikh – set up Singh Street Style in 2013, describing himself as the “Sikh sartorialist”. He has since scored himself nearly 35,000 followers on Instagram, modelling gigs with Adidas and Samsung and a line of sweatshirts with a cartoon Sikh character. Amit and Naroop have his seal of approval. “They have done an amazing job bringing out a sense of mystique, magic and beauty in their subjects,” says Bahra. “Coming from a similar line of work I feel this is an excellent way to not only celebrate the image of a Sikh, but to normalise the image of a turban and beard through the eyes of the west.” Normalised perhaps. Fashionable? Definitely.’

Strictly Come Dancing – yes there’s more – sets off on its incredible ‘journey’ this Friday with a new cast of sequined and lycra-ed contestants.  See above captured by Ray Burmiston in all their hyper coloured glory.

Jay Brooks photographed the cover of The Guardian Weekend‘s preview of the Rugby World Cup which starts this Friday with the hosts, England, versus Fiji at Twickenham.

The cover feature wryly pitched the question ‘are rugby’s stars a bunch of softees’ to which the answer was a resounding no, in spite of the ironic choices of props and locations.  Jay’s pictures featured Jim Hamilton, the Scots Godzilla, England’s George Ford and Mako and Billy Vunipola having a nice picnic, the Samoan captain Kahn Fortuali’i showing his caring side and Welshman George North being very unfrivolous and businesslike.

Just in case you aren’t quite up to speed on Rugby or the World Cup here’s a quick guide from The Guardian:

What is it?

The tournament runs from 18 September-31 October, and will be played at 12 stadiums in England, including Twickenham, and one in Wales. There are 20 teams, from the giants of the game (New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, France, the home nations) to the minnows (Namibia, Georgia, Uruguay, the US).

Who’s playing who?

The top two teams from each of the four seeded pools go through to the quarter-finals. Then it’s a knockout. Pool A is the “pool of death”: Australia, England, Wales, Fiji and Uruguay. South Africa, New Zealand, Argentina, Ireland and France should qualify for the last eight.

Watch out for

New Zealand v Argentina (20 September)

England v Wales (26 September)

England v Australia (3 October)

South Africa v Scotland (3 October)

Australia v Wales (10 October)

France v Ireland (11 October)

Matches will be broadcast on ITV and S4C.

Key positions

Forwards: large men who wrestle for the ball in rucks, mauls and scrums.

Props: square men who hold the scrum together.

Hooker: the player in the scrum who nudges the ball backwards.

Scrum-half: annoying character who hangs about behind the scrum.

Fly-half: key playmaker who receives the ball from the scrum-half.

Backs: players who line up behind the forwards, waiting for the chance to run at the opposition.

Players to watch

Israel Folau, Australia’s free-scoring full-back.

Richie McCaw, All Blacks captain.

George North, mighty Welsh winger.

Bismarck du Plessis, South African hooker, named after a battleship and built like one.

Chris Robshaw, England captain.

Johnny Sexton, Ireland’s mercurial fly-half.

Words to drop into conversation

Conversion: the kick at goal you get if you score a try (worth two points; a try is five).

Gain-line: an imaginary line the players try to cross to gain territorial advantage.

Garryowen: a high kick towards the opposition tryline.

Sin bin: where players who commit bad fouls are sent for 10 minutes.

Spear tackle: a dangerous tackle, where a player picks up an opponent and plunges him head first into the turf (perpetrators will be banished completely).

JB-Fountain_manblog2Wired

Wired commissioned Jay Brooks to photograph fountain maestro David Bracey getting appropriately wet in the fountain in Granary Square in London’s Kings Cross.

Bracey is the director of The Fountain Workshop, a London based company that has created cutting edge fountains bringing joy, excitement and wet feet to public spaces around Britain and across the world.  Their commissions can be seen in a number of British cities as well as, amongst others, Copenhagen and the UAE. The latest commission is the gamification of the fountains in Granary Square.  The 1080 water jets have been programmed to play the classic arcade game Snake using a smartphone app.  Playtime is between 5pm and 9pm if you fancy an early evening soaking.

Street Feast’s Model Market returns to Lewisham and these shots from Scott Grummett show just what’s in store.

The Indoor/Outdoor Night Market is back for a second summer of street food, drinking, dancing and unrivaled vibes.

Last year the team behind Street Feast transformed an abandoned 1950s market in Lewisham into south east London’s summer weekend capital of vibes. Street Feast Model Market is now back with a stellar line-up of superb street food, brilliant bars, a purely vinyl soundtrack and wonderful crowd. Plus, new this year: a suntrap, rooftop bar and terrace (aka the ‘Lewisham High Line’).

Street Feast Model Market will be running every Friday and Saturday from 5pm to 1am until 02/03 October.

No need to hang out for late night reruns, the Inbetweeners are BACK!  Following the huge box office success of their first movie, The Inbetweeners 2 will follow the boys on their Australian gap year, which they describe as “generally having a ball in a very British boys on holiday kind of way”.

To kick off the countdown to the release of their new movie, Shoot photographer Pip shot the group (in a rarely seen well-dressed state) for the cover of this week’s Shortlist Magazine.

The Inbetweeners 2 is out in cinemas on August 6th. Get ready, friends!

McBusted by Ray Burmiston

 

Ray Burmiston was commissioned to shoot this MAJOR moment in music history: the birth of McBusted.

In absolute secret (and with absolutely secret props) Ray joined the boys for their first ever photoshoot as a pop rock super-group!

This is the first image we are able to share, and there will be more to come!  Throughout 2014 McBusted, former members of the bands McFly and Busted, have played support for One Direction, started their own arena tour, and began work on an album.

We hear the McBusted live experience is a must for mid twenties who fancy a warm fuzzy night of throwbacks.

Lily Allen+Dolly Parton by Ray Burmiston

 

Glastonbury is upon us! And to celebrate the start of the festival, Ray Burmiston shot this great cover for Radio Times, featuring the legendary Dolly Parton and British pop superstar Lily Allen.

Ray managed to sneak in a quick shoot with the pair while Dolly was visiting The One Show recently.

Both will be taking to the Pyramid Stage during this week, Lily performing on Friday evening and Dolly taking the stage on Sunday afternoon.

 

She’s pretty excited:

Pip photographed polo-playing supermodel Jodie Kidd, as she became the official face of the Investec Derby Festival 2014.

Shooting in an old dilapidated church, Pip captures Jodie in all her elegance as she posed in hats by legendary milliner and official festival designer, Philip Treacy.  The fashion was inspired by 3 areas of the Epsom Racecourse – the Hill, the Duchess Stand and the Queen’s Stands.

Kidd says she is “really proud to take on the role of official face of the Investec Derby Festival. Modelling three different looks for the shoot shows that despite its prestigious racing reputation, fashion is a huge part of the day. I have been a fan of horses since I was 10 years old and find racing almost hypnotic, I look forward to sporting one of Philip Treacy’s creations and watching these beautiful animals compete in the greatest flat race of them all!”

Scarlet Page’s new exhibition – ‘Resonators’ – is about guitar heroes.  It is a stellar collection of portraits featuring some of the biggest names and most famous faces in music.

The epic project saw Scarlet travel far and wide to capture the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Slash, Brian May, Wilko Johnson, John Squire, and, of course, her father Jimmy Page.

S_Page_news_bg-test2

Media interest has been strong with radio interviews and features in The Times, Mojo and GQ Online amongst others.  The opening at the Royal Albert Hall was an impressive media and music business gathering. Radio 6 Music’s Shaun Keavney lived the dream having his picture taken with John Squire AND Jimmy Page!

Resonators can be seen at the Royal Albert Hall from 24th March  to 24th April

Sir Paul McCartney, Slash, Brian May, Wilko Johnson, John Squire, Steve Jones and Jimmy Page are all ‘Resonators’; with the rest of rock’s elite they are the subjects of Scarlet Page’s latest project, an exhibition of epic portraits at The Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

Scarlet grew up surrounded by music and musicians, the daughter of Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, the ‘guitarist’s guitarist’.  She began her career in photography, establishing herself as a successful music photographer, but she had been taking pictures of bands for over 15 years before she finally managed to shoot Jimmy ‘officially’ for a Sunday newspaper.  The session gave her the idea for a collection of portraits of guitar legends.

Scarlet explains, “I really wanted to do a charity project and Teenage Cancer Trust, with its incredible musical pedigree, and the amazing work it does, seemed ideal. I’ve been shooting now for over a year, and I’m not going to stop just yet”.

Resonators will open at the RAH on 24th March, and will run until 24th April. The prints will be on sale online in limited editions of 25. The first print of each edition will be signed by the ‘Resonator’ and Scarlet, and will be auctioned on ebay with all profits going to TCT. For a full list of subjects please visit the Resonators Facebook page.

Resonators prints will be on sale online at www.shootgroup.com/prints/scarlet-page-resonators/ . For the ‘first print eBay auction’ click here.

Resonators is kindly sponsored by Metro Imaging and Happy Finish.

DEPENDING ON THE STREET

In 2012, Søren Solkær Starbird began the very colourful and immersive personal project D.O.T.S to photograph artists who work in the public space.

Travelling to the Americas, across Europe and Australia, Søren has infiltrated the underground scene with the aim to portray the most significant figures in public and street art both on the contemporary scene as well as the pioneering figures.

Captivating and brilliant, the project will culminate in a book in 2014 with an exhibition to follow.

See more from the D.O.T.S project along with a video from his latest subject and adventure with Chris Pape aka Freedom in New York’s ‘Freedom Tunnel’…

Currently running from 26 September – 29 October 2012

This weekend Dean Chalkley will be in Margate to celebrate our great British Youth Culture Heritage as the Dreamland Trust opens the doors for its Soul Town Weekend and marks the 48th anniversary of the youth riots that took place in British seaside towns around the UK during Whitsun bank holiday weekend in 1964.

Soul tunes will be buzzing across various venues in Margate’s iconic Old Town vintage quarter along with special screenings of Dean Chalkley’s award-winning film, Young Souls, plus his latest film, The New Faces: A Short Filma documentary showcasing the continuing popularity of the sixties-born youth cult and a study of eight Mods bound together by a shared passion for smart dressing, rare soul, socialising and dancing.

And if that wasn’t enough, the Soul Town Weekend coincides with the opening of Tracey Emin’s first major solo exhibition at Turner Contemporary…much British culture to see and do!

In anticipation of the BAFTA Nominees 2012 party early next month, giant images from Jay BrooksTelevision Comedy Essay, from a previous BAFTA TV Awards photo shoot, are currently gracing the windows of Coutts Bank on The Strand.

Just under one week until Dean Chalkely returns to The Book Club for the premiere screening of The New Faces: A Short Film.

Following his landmark photographic exhibition, The New Faces which he unveiled in 2010- a study of eight young ‘Mods’, bound together by their shared passion for smart dressing, rare soul music, socialising and dancing-  the film forms a hypnotic visual experience as well as being an incisive and engaging contemporary document – The New Faces steps inside the minds of three young men captured in the enthrallment of a culture that they have fondly devoted themselves to.

In typical Dean Chalkley style, the film screening at The Book Club will be a party not to be missed. Not only will guests be amongst the first people to view Dean’s new short film, they will be enticed into dancing the night away to a sought-after selection of rare soul, rhythm & blues, ska, Latin and boogaloo! DJs on the night will include Jamie Parr and Tomas McGrath (featured in The New Faces: A Short Film) as well as Dean Chalkley and Si Cheeba (Black Cat) and Jo Wallace.

The New Faces: A Short Film will be hosted exclusively on SHOWstudio.com from 9th March 2012.
