Chalkie Davies at Cardiff Museum

So today I went to see a Chalkie Davies photography exhibition in Cardiff. Davies was a photographer for NME and shot some of the most famous and influential musicians of the 70s and 80s. Working only in black and white film, his pictures have a lovely grainy quality to them and are often posed in unique locations. Many of the photographs on display are unseen, a test devised by Davies years ago to see whether his pictures would still be culturally relevant, decades after they were taken.

I thought I would share some examples of his work on here and if your in Cardiff you have till September 6th to check them out first hand.c1 c2 c5 c4 c3
