London’s PYMCA Gallery is celebrating 30 years of club and street culture with Hartnett – 76 < Now, a celebration of the photography of Paul Hartnett.

Using A Nikon camera bought for £10 at a flea market, Hartnett’s work has gone from photographing fans of the Sex Pistols and New Romantics in London through to the likes of Tokyo’s Harajuku Kids, New York’s electro scene and the new rock scene in Paris, appearing in publications including i-D, Dazed & Confused, Tank, Attitude and The Independent Magazine along the way.

The exhibition kicks off on 14th February in a recreation of Leigh Bowery’s 80s club Taboo. You can check it out the PYMCA Gallery at the Vibe Bar, Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London E1.
