When you hear the name Ted Dwane you instantly think beardy bass player from Mumford and Sons, but in my instance after hearing that he is quite the photography fan when in conversation with Zane Lowe on Radio 1 I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to explore another love of his other than music. First speaking to him for Photography Monthly magazine before headlining Glastonbury this year, he revealed how developing photos in his mobile darkroom before performing on stage acts as a meditation and also how he counts Vivian Maier as one of his favourite photographers. Read the whole interview here.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the launch of his very first photography exhibition, held at the London Newcastle Space Shoreditch, and sponsored by Aberlour, we went to the pub beforehand and chatted photography and Glastonbury over a pint. And by the sounds of it there’s some exciting Mumford and Sons’ news in the pipeline. The interview is set to be published in Photography Monthly magazine next month, so make sure to check it out!
Ted Dwane’s exhibition A Show of Faces is open until Sunday.
