Kevin Cummins classic photography prints

Cummins


Kevin Cummins
is the former chief photographer of the NME (when it was worth reading) and a man who, in his time, has managed to be in the right place at the right time when it came to music in the 70s and 80s. And his images he shot are now available to buy as limited edition photographic prints.

You can browse the available prints at the Paul Smith online store, with the likes of Paul Weller, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Marc Bolan and the Sex Pistols featured, along with non-music folk like Terence Stamp, Quentin Crisp and Alberrt Finney.

But we love this Bernard Sumner print. It’s a gelatin-silver photographic print, sized at 40.6 x 30cm and in an edition of 30, with the image itself capturing the New Order man in New York in 1983. Yours for £881.

    Perhaps this is the right site for me to make these comments.
    It seems that everyone has gone digital mad – whether it is in photography or electronics (my own two interests)or anything else.
    In the former, I still do not think that a digital print can match the depth and subtlety of a silver print and in the latter the quality of digital radio in the UK does not match that of an FM transmission.
    In both cases digital techniques have some advantages – but so have analogue.
    I am always reminded of the “experts” who decided to replace the old (1870) pumps on the Severn railway tunnel sometime in the 1960s. The pumps were duly repaced by modern units which had more breakdowns in the first year than the old ones had had in the previous fifty.
    I must admit I am somewhat biassed – after all I am rather ancient myself and prefer to remain analogue!
