Historic photographs go on show of the colourful punk scene at its height in London and New York

LONDON, July 08, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- A new photographic exhibition in the centre of the City of London will open next month featuring some of the world's greatest images of the punk rock movement. Curated by punk writer and theorist Jon Savage, the exhibition is called I Got You In My Camera: Punk 1976-1979 and will run from 2nd July to 27th July at the Olympus Rockarchive Image Space Gallery at 199 Bishopsgate. The gallery is located in the heart of the City, close to St Paul's Cathedral, the Bank Of England and other symbols of the British establishment that the punk movement so disliked. For more on the many attractions in this area of London, see LondonTown.com, where you will also find information about London hotels, shops and restaurants, as well as events taking place throughout the summer in all parts of the capital.

The punk exhibition has been pulled together under the guidance of Savage, who has secured work from some of the greatest punk photographers of the London scene featuring the Sex Pistols, Clash, Damned and Buzzcocks but also in New York, where the likes of the Ramones, Patti Smith, Television and Talking Heads performed. Photographers involved include the likes of Sheila Rock, Roberta Bayley, Richard Mann, Adrian Boot, Bob Gruen, Ray Stevenson and Jill Furmanovsky, many of whom will be exhibiting together for the first time, providing rich visual material of an iconic, image-led season in never-before-seen photographs. Some of the musicians that will be featured in the exhibition include Johnny Rotten, Joe Strummer, Debbie Harry, Patti Smith and Sid Vicious.

The exhibition will focus on the core years of punk, from 1976 when the scenes in both New York and London began to take off, to 1979, when Sid Vicious died of a heroin overdose at the Chelsea Hotel in New York City. There will be a series of punk-themed evenings taking place throughout the exhibition. For more information, see LondonTown.com.
