Derek Ridgers new book launch
On October 4, 2018, I attended Derek Ridgers new book launch and Pop Up Show in The Old Truman Brewery in London East End.
I meet Derek some year ago in the club in London, have seen his work in the Load magazine, which had inspired me to do more on the alternative fashion side with my photography!
It was a very busy evening, when I arrived, and very hot too!
I got a drink and had a walk around looking at some Derek portraits on the wall. There a great selection of different portraits from the famous to the unknown, subject in his street photography.
He also had on display some of his work that had been published in some magazines.
The venue was buzzy with a load of people with all sorts of fashion styles and vary in the age group.
There were also some top fashion designers at the event. So I got my camera out and started taking some shots of some of the people there and of course some of Derek too.
I did treat myself to his new book, Derek Riders Photographs, which was selling very well on the night! I did also note one Derek print had sold too. If I am right I think this was Derek Tenth book he has done!
