My Generation: Leeds New Modernists

My Generation: Leeds New Modernists
Written by Casey Orr  05/12/2016

For the past forty years, every new generational sub-culture has looked back to discover the art, style and culture of the 1960s and '70s, appropriating and incorporating the music and style of those decades into a modern experience. Leeds, along with the rest of Britain, has its club nights, bands, record stores and clothes shops dedicated to the music and fashion of the beats, the mods, the skins and the punks. The young people of 'The Z Generation', photographed here, are rummaging through the archives, but with the added desire for the technologies those decades utilised.'My Generation – Leeds New...

Casey Orr: Portraits of Anarchists

Casey Orr: Portraits of Anarchists
Written by Casey Orr  14/07/2016

My portrait series Portraits of Anarchists from 1996 is being shown at The Chemic Tavern in Leeds as part of Jimmy Cauty’s Aftermath Dislocation Principle; a post-riot diarama of a city that was shown at Banksy’s Dismaland last summer. This is new edit of the original series of Portraits of Anarchists. This work has never been digitized and consequently much of it hasn’t been seen for 20 years. Many of the people photographed aren’t with us anymore and many others have continued to organize, be active in social movements, make art and work collectively.
