Martin Parr: we don’t appreciate British photography enough

The Martin Parr Foundation

“I hope it’ll be a place where people can take photography seriously,” says Martin Parr, his distinctive forthrightness in full swing. “A place where people come and share the things that I’ve discovered and have an opportunity to enjoy them. That’s my hope.”

He’s talking about the Martin Parr Foundation, a new centre for British photography and…

Unravelling the world of Arthur Russell

Arthur Russell

Arthur Russell was the changeling prince of 1970s New York’s downtown music scene. A virtual unknown in his lifetime, the shy Midwesterner was a classical music student who found himself drawn to the transcendent possibilities offered by disco, after a mythical encounter at the Gallery venue in SoHo. From there, he went on to cut a string of the era’s most fantastically strange records, influential on the development of house and hip hop, in between more…

How this year’s Emmys were political and oddly hypocritical

sean spicer

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards aired on CBS on Sunday with Stephen Colbert presenting. Naturally, as with all awards shows for the last couple of years and until we leave our dystopian present, things turned political early. Before the ceremonial back-slapping even began Issa Rae made it…

Dazed Mix: Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s new album is her own interpretation of the four stages of life. The first stage resembles the first footsteps of a newborn child and is characterised by wonky, stumbling, percussive work. As the record progresses into the later stages of life, intergalactic melodies intertwine with philosophical themes as the ‘kid’ of the album’s title becomes more inquisitive about their world. These themes – of curiosity, of inquisitivity –…

Fran Lobo's ‘War’ is a feminist dream produced by women

Screen Shot 2017-09-17 at 10.47.59

Fran Lobo is a one of a kind. The London-based singer songwriter is currently carving out a niche of her own, creating music that all at once manages to be ethereal, empowering and perfect for a sing-along, and conjuring up comparisons to artists as diverse as PJ Harvey, Grimes and Rage Against the Machine. It’s no surprise then, that an artist who is impossible to categorise and put in a box has created a music video that spans influences across film, music, dance and beyond. War, her…

The young London designers exploring their heritage at LFW

FashionEast asai ss18 lfw london

Racial diversity and fashion are tricky bedfellows. Not because the two don’t naturally go together, but because the fashion industry, in its unending quest for what's next, is guilty of omitting voices and faces of colour, both on the runway and behind-the-scenes.

While there’s plenty of conversation about promoting diversity in fashion, for years these calls have been left only partially answered, with people often unquestioningly profiling and platforming white models and white…

Gareth Pugh and Nick Knight on the future of fashion

Screen Shot 2017-09-16 at 17.54.14

When we speak to Gareth Pugh and Nick Knight, it is a few days prior to the premiere of an unorthodox, ambitious, and at the time top-secret project, slotted into London Fashion Week’s schedule where Pugh’s SS18 runway show might have taken place.

Unorthodoxy and ambition are two words that feel synonymous with the duo, evidenced in their work both as long-time collaborators and independent visionaries. As fashion film’s auteur,…
