“At it’s roots, it’s more than meets the eye”, Sixties troubadour Dion once said of his 1962 hit ‘The Wanderer’. As six inconspicuous mop-haired lads from Liverpool fidget side by side over a sparkling afternoon over Camden lock, this much seems obvious. As the click of the camera demands more than just a fading glance from each figure standing (some decidedly, some casually propped up against the backdrop) over the make-shift bridge, wandering pedestrians pass after each framed shot, running towards safe passage over on the other side, yet indifferent to the commotion. Observing all six men, uncomfortably manoeuvred into a Usual Suspects inspired line-up, the attention is pulled downwards towards each member’s suede moccasin shoes. Each differing slightly in colour, yet each pair endearingly matched to the next.
