This weekend sees a number of names* present the debut exhibition from West Londoner, Dexter Navy.
Looking after their favourites like a skateboard team might its skaters, the agency develops close relationships with the photographers it commissions (among them Clash endorsed talents Hayley Louisa Brown and Neil Bedford), so their involvement with Navy – who established himself shooting Billionaire Boys Club look books (like this) – is of little surprise.
Now based between London, LA and Paris, Navy’s exhibition will run at east London’s Hoxton Gallery from this Friday through to Sunday (22nd). It’s title, ‘36’, is pulled from his analogue way of working, 36 being the number of frames produced by a 35mm film, obvs.
The 36 images presented (including the handful above), were each shot on a classic point and shoot Yashica T4 – similarly the favoured toy of Terry Richardson – with a Carl Zeiss lens.
As if an exhibition of his own wasn’t enough, a glance at Dexter’s Instagram (@DEXTERNAVY) sees a batch of 35mm film brandished with ’36 by Dexter Navy’, an impressive feat for any young photographer.
