A new Kevin Cummins exhibition, ‘Exemplar : Joy Division’, is running at The Manchester Photographic Gallery until February 26th.

the exhibition features many of his defining images of the band which are some of the best rock n roll photos ever taken (the photo to the right is obviously not one of his!)

We went to the preview a couple weeks ago and its breathtakingly brilliant. This is definitely one to go to.

  1. Very impressive exhibition. The stark white walls of all three floors provide the perfect backdrop to the black & white photos. “Iconic” is a much-over used word these days, but I had a real sense of being in the presence of something truly memorable. Mind you, at £995 for a very limited edition photo, they should be.

  2. The ‘scribbles’ in the photograph look like the Armenian womens mark before the Genocide – Along the same idea but not quite Throbbing Gristle, if you know what I mean.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. I precisely wished to say thanks once again. I do not know what I might have undertaken without the opinions revealed by you regarding that situation. It was an absolute hard setting in my circumstances, but encountering a new well-written avenue you dealt with it forced me to cry with joy. Now i am happier for this advice and thus hope you recognize what an amazing job you are accomplishing training the rest thru your web page. I’m certain you have never come across any of us.

  5. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  6. Wow! This can be one particular of the most helpful blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Fantastic. I am also an expert in this topic so I can understand your hard work.

  7. So glad to see that Kevin is really exploring new ideas here. Joy Division…hmm .. yeah.. its all so very different to what he’s done before isn’t it?
