A weekly show exploring the wonderful world of analog photography from every angle


Got a real treat for you this week, with multi award winning photographer Brian Griffin, one of the most respected and lauded photographers of the 70's and '80's, a photographer who not only managed to make photo's of business leaders into surrealist art, but also shot some of the biggest names in music in the 80's, and is responsible for some iconic record covers.


We had a great chat with Brian, but we only got to scratch the surface of his experiences. Luckily for us all he's currently kickstarting a book documenting his work and life from 1969 to 1990 called "Black Country DADA" so go check that out!
