Faces That Replace the Darkness

Posted by Sue Jarman on 10 November 2017


Kevin Cummins’ exhibition, ‘Faces That Replace the Darkness: Punk in Manchester 1977-79', is on at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, until Saturday 18th November – and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

This body of work is being shown alongside the Theatre’s new production of “Jubillee’.

Cummins also worked with the Theatre as their production photographer between 1978-87, and recently on some of their more current promotional imagery.

‘Kevin Cummins was Manchester’s premier documenter of the punk scene. He graduated from Salford University as punk took its first faltering steps…’ The Royal Exchange Theatre

“I didn’t walk straight into a job. I shot the Punk scene in and around Manchester because it was exciting alt- youth culture movement. I then got the chance to submit some photos to the NME (New Musical Express) and I've continued to shoot musicians all my career.” Kevin Cummins



The Sex Pistols, Brighton.

We’re fans of Cummins’ work and are working with him on his eighth monograph ‘SO IT GOES: Punk and the Aftermath’ being published by Red Engine Publishing in March 2018.

And on another iconic note - there’s also just over a week to enter the Bowie screenprint competition, deadline 20th November!
