So It Goes

Posted by Sue Jarman on 23 December 2017


As this year draws to a close, we’re looking ahead to 2018.

And as mentioned briefly in our last blog, we’re working on ‘So It Goes: PUNK AND THE AFTERMATH’, with internationally renowned photographer Kevin Cummins.



The 'So It Goes' book

Manchester born Cummins is one of the world's leading photographers. His iconic portraits of musicians include Joy Division, Liza Minnelli, Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Philip Glass, Oasis, and David Bowie. These images have appeared on magazine covers, in art galleries, featured in international films, and are included in the collections of The National Portrait Gallery and The V&A amongst others.

Cummins captured key moments in the Manchester music scene and these images helped to define the cultural history of the city. They not only portrayed people and places but created a new way of looking at Manchester and remain embedded in the cultural memory of the north. Bedroom walls all over the world have been, and are, decorated with his work.

He has lived in London since 1987 but retains strong links with his home city.

'One of Britain’s greatest photographers' - The Independent

'Cummins has raised the status of his work to the level of art' - John Peel

We are now able to share a few images of the book.



Joy Division

You can sign up for notifications on this and other upcoming projects at redenginepublishing.co.uk – including the soon to be announced option to pre-order this publication.

In November we were also delighted to announce THE WINNER of the Limited Edition ‘David Bowie’ screenprint competition - Ellen Winfield from Bristol was “absolutely thrilled!“

This print will be available to buy, in our shop, from January!

And lastly – a very merry Christmas from all of us at Red Engine!
