‘Fenton Bailey Camera Shy’ at Lights of Soho, in collaboration with Quite Useless

If you’re on Brewer Street, Soho over the next few days, be sure to check out Fenton Bailey’s exhibition at the gloriously neon-lit Lights of Soho gallery and members’ club. Photographer Fenton Bailey (son of David) will be displaying pictures of his muse, having developed his own distinctive style.

If you’re on Brewer Street, Soho over the next few days, be sure to check out Fenton Bailey’s exhibition at the gloriously neon-lit Lights of Soho gallery and members’ club. Photographer Fenton Bailey (son of David) will be displaying pictures of his muse, having developed his own distinctive style. Harking back to the Victorian era with his posed nudes and the themes of love and tenderness, Fenton has reinvented the Mutoscope (an early motion picture device, available to only one person at a time), calling it the Fentoscope – the perfect riposte to today’s tech-heavy reliance on iPhones and sharing of selfies. Fenton Bailey creates a world that resonates, with interactive sculpture and the aesthetic of the ‘hand-made’. This seems the ideal collaboration for LoS, who are keen to keep the link between a rapidly changing present and not-so-distant past alive and kicking in London’s iconic Soho.

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design.
