THE NEW FACES by DEAN CHALKLEY
April - June 2010
A long-time contributor to seminal music magazine NME, Dean Chalkley has cast his affectionate eye on contemporary culture and its heroes and heroines. His lens has captured the often unexpected essence of established and new favorites; from The Manic Street Preachers and The White Stripes to These New Puritans and The Horrors. Other notable subjects in his epic catalogue of work include Scarlett Johansson, Oasis, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Russell Brand, Colin Farrell, Kasabian, and Simon Cowell. Dean does not restrict his photography to one sort of subject matter, his objective being to use his photography to make comment and exercise ideas… and to have fun.
