New Order by Kevin Cummins: Photo Exhibition at Proud Galleries, London

Proud Galleries are hosting an exhibition "New Order" by Kevin Cummins between 23rd April and 7th June 2015.

Uniquely placed to document the rise of New Order, from their formation in 1980 to their split in 1993, Cummins’ long-term friendship gave him unparalleled access to the band and captured the band in every light. From underground beginnings as the flagship group of Factory Records in Manchester and intimate studio shots to the frenetic energy of live performances and grandstand tours around Europe and America, he captured a broad and unfettered view of the band. Launching in conjunction with Cummins’ book of the same name published by Rizzoli, this rare collection is the definitive photographic portrait of the legendary band who achieved mainstream success while retaining their cult status.
