NEW ART! Tom Martin
As you know, North bar love to bring you tasty treats for you eyes as well as your bellies with our constantly changing exhibitions. This month we are proud to present a collection of photography by Leeds photographer, and long time friend of the bar, Tom Martin.
Over the last few years Tom has made a name for himself working in the music industry shooting for magazines like NME and Kerrang as well as working for bands like Elbow. This is the first time though that Tom has exhibited a collection of his ‘non-music’ photographs. The shots are based mainly around narrative led fashion, showcasing some bizarre and slightly creepy characters.
The statuesque Edith & Edith sat in their crumbling garden, the urban cowgirl negotiating the wilderness of her front room and some sinister twins in retro 70’s attire. Tom tells us “I’m so glad we could put this show on at North bar, it was the perfect choice. I wanted somewhere that was relaxed and quirky, where people could have a drink and get to know the characters on the walls like they do in the bar.”
Toms exhibition runs until the 17th of July. His website is here…
