Mavericks: A photographic show by Peter Ashworth
LONDON  •  The Lever Gallery  •  16 November - 8 December 2018

The Lever Gallery hosts the work of photographer Peter Ashworth in his first solo London exhibition.

Ashworth created some of the most memorable images of 1980s icons.

He photographed Soft Cell, Eurythmics, Blancmange, The The, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Adam Ant, Tina Turner, Julian Cope, and The Clash, to name but a few, for album sleeves and magazine covers.

The album sleeve was the much-analysed visual focus of fans attention. It was critical to how the group and music were perceived. In some cases, it became synonymous with the ‘image’ of the group or star. Take for example Ashworth’s portrait of Annie Lennox for the Eurythmics album ‘Touch'.

Ashworth’s skill was to capture the character of his subjects whilst setting them in meticulously detailed, colourful and rich backgrounds. His depth of knowledge matched with his urge to create resulted in work both fantastical and challenging. He was at the heart of the London music and fashion scene and immersed himself in the ideas and style of that vibrant period. Ashworth’s work has become an embodiment of the spirit of the time and is an important register of some of the most popular stars of that era.
